Parents, You should have received a sheet in your student's Friday Folder asking you to sign and return acknowledging that you received info about the student handbook. If you have not returned it yet, please do so.

Our school handbook is full of important policies and procedures pertaining to your student. Should you ever have a question about district policy, please reference the handbook. It can be found on our school website or right here.


Liberty's Early Childhood Center is hosting a Board Book Drive now through December 1st. Parents as Teachers will be distributing the books to families during home visits in December. These books will help families to support emerging literacy in their little ones when they might not normally have access to board books in their own home.

Please take a look through your book collection for any board books your children may have outgrown. Getting books into the hands of children at and early age is fundamental to promote a love for books and stimulate developing language skills.

There is a blue collection box in the Schumacher office. Feel free to send the books to school with your student. And thank you for supporting early literacy in our youngest learners here in Liberty!
