Music Groups at Liberty Academy

Liberty Academy is excited to offer music groups again through the Children's Services Fund! This started late spring and was a hit with a group of our kids at LA. This year, we have the capacity to offer THREE music groups of up to 12 students max in each group.

If your student is interested in checking this group out, please complete the permission slip (click HERE to get it) or have your student bring the permission slip home from school for you to sign.

Please note: Music group is on a voluntary basis. A permission slip on file does not mean your child will ever be expected or forced to attend.

With regard to the Homecoming dance:

  • LHS highly discourages the use of party buses. In previous years, there have been numerous issues with students making poor choices on unsupervised buses. If you choose to acquire a party bus or limo for your student’s party, we highly recommend a parent supervisor ride in the vehicle. If buses or limos park on campus, and there is a concern for student safety, these vehicles may be searched in our efforts to keep all children safe and sober.
  • It is the expectation that all students adhere to the LHS Student Handbook and LPS District Policies while at the dance and all other school events.
