Form with Questions

Mock Trial Wins!

Mock Trial is new to Liberty this year! Mrs. Franke and volunteer attorney-coach Dean Nichols started working with students in October. A wrongful death case was provided by the Missouri Bar Association where students had to take on the case during one round as the plaintiff and one round as the defense. Liberty students played the roles of witnesses and lawyers. The witnesses had to learn the deposition of their character and be able to answer any questions that were posed by both sides, and the lawyers had to create opening and closing statements as well as direct and cross-examination questions. Liberty's first round was in January, where we played the part of the plaintiff. Our second round was last Thursday where we won against Lutheran South.

Publications has a lot of new content up at lhstoday.org. The team publishes 2-3 stories each day. Let us know what you think or if you would like to submit a story idea for a reporter to write about. This site is entirely student-driven from its reporting, photography, videography and design.

DECA Update

On February 12, 41 Liberty students boarded the bus to head to DECA District Competition at South County Mall. The students had been preparing for this since August. Liberty students were confident and fierce in their presentations. When it came time for awards, we all sat in amazement on the number of times Liberty students were being called up to receive trophies. Liberty students took home 23 trophies that day and qualified a record number of students for State Competition in Kansas City, MO held in March.


We are continuing the preparation for State Competition in hopes to move on to International Competition held in Nashville, TN.

Attention 11th Grade Parents!

Dear Junior Parents and Students:


The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has mandated that the Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine (MCV4) will be required for all twelfth (12th) grade students. All students starting 12th grade shall have two doses of MCV. This immunization is different from the recommended but not required Meningitis B. You may request a copy of your child’s immunization record by contacting the school nurse’s office.

Your child’s medical provider can provide more information concerning the vaccine and requirements.


Please provide proof of immunizations by August 1, 2020 to your student’s school nurse. This will allow ample time for the nurses to check compliance of each student’s immunization records. Students who do not have immunization proof prior to the first day of school will not be allowed to start the new school year until proof of vaccination is received. If your student is participating in summer school between their 11th and 12th grade year, they MUST show proof of this immunization PRIOR to summer school starting in June.


If your student has already received his/her shot for their senior year please fax or email an up to date record to the nurse’s office as soon as possible. If you are not sure if your student is up to date, please call their doctor. It is important to know that your child's doctor's office does not automatically send us their immunization records. It is a parent's responsibility to request those be sent to us.


Thank you for your attention to this important issue. Please contact the school nurse if you have any questions regarding this vaccine requirement.
