Thanks to the support of PTA and efforts of volunteer Top Dog Steve Glaser, Liberty is establishing a WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) to encourage and increase the on-site involvement of Dads, Stepdads, Grandfathers, Uncles, and other male role models in the daily activities at our school.

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 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, appointments, 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. 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.
All car rider vehicles are asked to pull all the way forward in the appropriate line and leave little space between vehicles to limit possible movement of students between vehicles. If your student is a designated walker, please do not park your car in the parking lot and come to the entrance to retrieve them, they are a car rider and should be picked up in the designated car rider line. If they are a walker, please use the west sidewalk along the pit and crosswalk to pick them up on a neighborhood street.
Parking and walking up to the building causes delays in the vehicle traffic and could lead to tardies in the morning and frustrated adults in the afternoon. In other words, no one should park their vehicle, walk to the building and pick up their student, and then walk back to their vehicle and pull out into car rider traffic. Also, when coming from the west, please be sure to follow the outer curb the entire time you are in line and not travel up and down the rows of parked cars as this is a safety issue. Please also be aware of the state laws about expanded no cell phone usage around schools and the higher fines for passing stopped school buses.
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!
