Liberty Academy Newsletter

January 16, 2019

Welcome to all new Liberty Academy students and families! We're glad you're here!

Parking at dismissal! Please help!

PLEASE do not pull up and park at our building for dismissal. Instead, use the car rider line that forms in the parking lot. There are a lot of students walking through the parking lot and when you back out of your parking spot it could create a dangerous situation for our students.
