Liberty Middle School

Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year

We are so excited to start our 2022/23 School Year.


It was great to see all of our families at Orientation. I hope that you could feel the excitement and sense of belonging that being a Blue Jay at Liberty Middle School brings.


This year we are continuing our focus on creating opportunities for our students to sharpen their learning habits. Our district's Graduate Profile will be a guide for our work. We will ask students to Learn Like a Blue Jay by being creative/critical thinkers, organized, collaborative, self-knowing, curious, imaginative, determined, and attentive. We want our learners to take ownership of their learning and to take pride in the effort that they put into it. These skills will lead to the success in their learning for the years to come.


With that said, we want to welcome to all of our incoming 6th Grade Blue Jays and welcome back this year's 7th and 8th Grade Blue Jays. Liberty Middle School is right where you belong!

Return to Learn Changes for 2022/23

As we have transitioned through the 2020, 2021, and now 2022 school years, we have continued to monitor and adjust our return to learn plan. This year we will ask all students to use their lockers to keep their backpacks and their personal electronic devices (cell phones, wired/wireless headphones, etc.) locked up during the school day. Our goal is to limit distractions to the learning environment.


We will continue to provide masks for students that would need them. Keep an eye out for more information to come from both LMS and LPS on any procedural changes.

10. Returning Student Registration & Annual Residency Verification

If you have a student that completed the 2021-2022 school year with Liberty Public Schools, and will be returning for the 2022-2023 school year, you will be required to complete a Returning Student Registration. Beginning Monday, July 11, 2022 parents will be able to log onto their PowerSchool Parent Portal account and select the Returning Student Registration tab in the left column. When arriving there, you will then be able to update your student’s information for the upcoming school year. We ask that this process be completed for each of your students before Friday, August 12, 2022.


If you do not already have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account and need to set one up, you can do that at any time by following the steps on the Liberty Public Schools website under “For Families”, then “PowerSchool”, or simply by clicking here.


Finally, if you have a returning kindergarten, 6th, or 9th grade student, you will be required to verify residency. You will be able to upload your residency verification items within the Returning Student Registration (ex: utility bills, lease agreement, etc.).
