Dear Liberty Park Families,
Student Drop Offs: Please ensure that students are being dropped off in the designated car rider drop off area on the west end of the parking lot. The east end of our front parking lot is designated for bus traffic and students should not be dropped off in that area. Additionally, please ensure that handicap spots are left available for our students and families that require those spots. Thank you for your patience and diligence in helping us ensure the safety of all during this daily process.
As temperatures continue to drop please make sure that your students has proper winter wear. If we can be of any assistance in helping make sure your student has access to a winter coat, hat, gloves, etc. please contact the school office at 317-532-1850 and ask to speak with either Nurse Kelly or Mrs. Hench. We will do all we can to give your child the proper winter gear.
Have a great weekend and as always, I thank you for your continued support of Liberty Park Elementary!

Notes from Nurse Kelly
Parents, please check your closets over the Winter Break and if your child has outgrown their uniform pants, please consider donating them to Liberty Park. We are in need of boys and girls uniform pants in sizes 5, 6, 7, and 8. Also, if your child has borrowed clothes from the school, please remember to return them to Liberty Park. If your child has had an "accident" while at school, please remember to put a change of clothes for them in their backpacks so they have their own clothes to change in to. This would be very helpful. Thank you.
