Update: Two LHS students, one LES staffer, test positive for COVID-19

The district has learned that over the weekend of Feb. 6-7, several members of the Liberty Central School District community have tested positive for COVID-19.

Our thoughts are with the individuals who have tested positive and we wish them a speedy recovery. Privacy laws restrict the disclosure of personally identifiable information of anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Student meals are available for pick-up while the high school is on remote instruction.

Liberty High School

LHS is on all remote instruction | In person classes resume Feb. 18

  • Two students tested positive for COVID-19. One student was last on campus Feb. 3; one student was last on campus Jan. 29.
  • The decision to transition to remote instruction comes as the result of the required quarantine of several staff members and an inability to adequately staff the building with substitutes. The school has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized.

LHS Athletics

  • Practices and contests resume Feb. 9 and will continue, as scheduled, while LHS is on remote learning. If school is closed due to hazardous weather, practices are cancelled.

Liberty Middle School

Liberty Elementary School

LES is opened as scheduled

  • A staff member, who was last in the building Jan. 29, tested positive for COVID-19. Sullivan County Public Health was notified.  The person was not in the building while contagious for the coronavirus, so no contact tracing is required by the school.

In all of the above instances, staff members and parents and guardians of students who may be at risk for exposure to COVID-19 have been notified by an administrator or school nurse. Contact tracers from Sullivan County Public Health Services also reach out to people at risk for contracting the coronavirus and advise them of what steps to take.

For more information about our health and safety procedures please reach out to your building principal. Questions about COVID-19 should be directed to your healthcare provider or Sullivan County Public Health Services at 845-292-5910.
