    The Character Trait for next week is Acceptance!

    Remember that the no cell phone use in a school zone includes ALL of the campus too, including while in the car rider line.

    Please be sure to label all items that come to school with the first and last name of your student(s).  Items tend to be forgotten in various places and we try to reconnect them with their owners.  Having names clearly marked is very helpful.  Thank you.

    Please note that for a student to be counted as present for a school day and continue on the road to great or perfect attendance, they must not be tardy and remain at school throughout the scheduled day.  To be considered present and not absent for any given school day, students must be in their classroom no later than 9:00am.  This includes any reason for not being on time at 7:45am – overslept, traffic issues, not feeling well, or appointments for reasons other than medical, etc.

    In the daily comings and goings to and from campus, thank you for following the law in regards to not parking in fire lanes and identified accessible spaces and for not using your cell phones and other electronic devices.  This includes during arrivals and dismissals for the safety of all and consistent movement of traffic.

    Parents and guardians should always escort their student(s) to and from the main office when checking in or out from being late, attending to an appointment, etc.  The front circle drive is specifically designated for ten minutes or less parking for such occurrences and should not be utilized as a standard parking spot for attending lunch, conferences, meetings, or during arrival and dismissal time; as this is a courtesy to others and helpful for delivery vehicles and any emergency vehicles.  Visitor parking is widely available in the west lot.

    We have a beautiful campus here at Liberty that we are very proud of.  You are encouraged to assist us in keeping it that way by making sure all trash is disposed of properly (a lot of items fall out of cars) including the ends of cigarettes, that we are careful with our use of the outside and inside areas, furniture, walls, and windows; and that it is okay to either individually or as a group pick up trash or spruce up our environment for the enjoyment of all.  Thank you.

    Thank you for your continued support of Liberty, positive communication, and willingness to work together!
