School Policies


Electronics Policy
Students, please be reminded that ALL electronics should be powered off before school begins. They should be stored in your locker during the school day. Make sure your locker is secured with a lock. Consequences will be given if phones are used during the day or if they disturb class.

Check Cashing Policy
Neither the Main Office nor the Cafeteria has funds available for cashing checks for students. Students should bring separate checks for payment of lunches, PE uniforms, Activity Fees, and/or FIT/GO collections.  If you have any questions, you may contact our bookkeeper Darlene Wessel, in the Main Office.  Thank You for your cooperation.

Security Measures
In an effort to keep our school safe, any visitor to our school needs to show photo I.D. when entering the building.  Please be aware of this security measure.  Also, once school begins for the day, all doors entering our building are locked with the exception of the main door. This is the door you must use to enter our building.

Before School Rules
Please remember that 6th and 7th grade students are to be in the large gym until the bell rings at 7:50.  The 8th graders need to have a seat in the Commons until the bell rings at 7:50.No students are allowed to be anywhere in the building, including their lockers, until 7:50.  Students who wish to eat breakfast should report the Commons and stay there until the 7:50 bell rings.

Activity Buses
There is one activity bus run available for students needing transportation from after-school activities.  The run is at 4:45PM.  The four buses arrive at school at 4:35 PM  and leave 10 minutes later at 4:45. Please note that the activity bus drop-off points are not necessarily the same as on the regular after-school runs.  Students should go to one of the buses, inform the bus driver of their address, and he/she will tell them which bus to board.

YMCA
If you are planning to go to the Y after school, please pay attention to the following rules.

  1. Parental permission will be required.  Students, who want to attend, must have a note from a parent. The note must be turned into the office by 1:00 PM on the day the student is requesting to attend.  
  2. You must be a member of the YMCA to attend. 
  3. The crossing guard will check students off a list prior to escorting them across the street.  Students who are not on the approved list will not be allowed to cross to the YMCA.
  4. Students are not allowed to return to Liberty Middle School when they are finished at the YMCA. They may not come back to ride the 4:45PM Activity bus.  It will be your parent’s responsibility to provide transportation from the YMCA.

The YMCA will provide a great opportunity for you; however, I am very concerned about the safety of all of our students as they cross the street to attend the Y.  These guidelines will be strictly enforced to ensure that all students can safely cross Goshen Road.
