Volunteer Opportunity for Vision and Hearing Screening

October has been a busy and productive month. School counselors have visited classrooms, new gardens were planted, student photos were sent home, students enjoyed playing with games and sports equipment during Student Break Time, students started their campaigns for SCA leadership roles, every student received student planner assignment book, and a second tent was added to our courtyard. October 25- October 28 we will have vision and hearing screenings for 7th grade students. We are looking for adult family volunteers to help with our screenings. Three volunteers are needed for each day. If you are able to volunteer, please sign up here.  Thank you for your support.

Middle school is a great time for students and parents to start exploring options for the future.  As part of Virtual College Week this week, FCPS is offering a variety of virtual workshops.  One of the sessions that would be of interest for this age group would be “Exploring Naviance Student”, as well as several others that may help start a conversation about the college and career exploration process.  Please click on the Schedule of Events to learn about the sessions.  All sessions will be recorded and posted on the College Week Google site if you are unable to attend in person.

Wellness Screening for 7th and 8th Grade Students

We will be conducting a Wellness Screening for 7th and 8th grade students in the coming weeks.  The 8th grade screening will take place on October 19th and 26th, and the 7th grade screening will take place on November 9th and 16th.  Signs of Suicide (SOS) is offered to help assess whether students may have symptoms consistent with depression.  Depression is a treatable illness, and effective treatment of depression helps to prevent suicide, as well as significant behavioral, social, and educational problems.

 

More details are included in the enotify messages that were sent out this month.  If you do NOT wish for your child to participate in this depression awareness and prevention session, please complete this OPT OUT FORM.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Angie Huber, School Social Worker, at (703) 988-8222 or [email protected] and Joanna Wheeler, School Psychologist, at (703) 988-8132 or [email protected]

Tardy Policy at Liberty

There are many reasons why students are expected to be on time to class. Tardiness reduces the instructional time for the student who is late. A student's tardiness interrupts the class he or she is coming into, resulting in a loss of instructional quality and time for all students. Students late to class frequently are noisy in the halls and disturb surrounding classrooms. Students late to class create additional work for teachers and the attendance office. Punctuality is a practice valued by high school, college, business and society. All students will benefit from developing a habit of being on time to class.

Liberty has always had a tardy policy which includes teaching students about being on time to class, opportunities for students to be reminded, communication with families, and additional steps that are implemented when students are repeatedly late to class. Please take a look at the Liberty Middle School tardy policy. We ask for your continued support in helping our students to be successful learners and being on time for class.

Digital Citizenship and Taking a Different Point of View

School counselors are have been presenting SEL Lessons focused on technology and respecting the worldview of others during the month of October.   The seventh-grade lessons are focused on digital citizenship and the proper use of technology both educationally and socially.  The eighth grade lessons focus on varying viewpoints and understanding and respecting the worldview of others.   Thank you to our 7th and 8th Grade Science Departments for sacrificing time to make this possible.

Bus Notes and Attendance Reminders Bus Notes:

If your student is interested in riding the bus home with a friend, no problem! We need a parent note from each parent, one for the student riding the alternate bus and one from the parent approving another student to come to their house after school. Each note needs to be brought to the main office at the beginning of the school day and a bus pass will be available for the student riding the alternate bus at the end of the school day. Starting Tuesday October 12, 2021, bus notes will no longer be accepted by email. We need a note bought to the main office by each student at the beginning of the day. Thank you!

Attendance Reminders:

If your student is going to miss part or a full day of school, please reach out to the attendance line in order to get their excused absence recorded. The phone number is 7039888181, the email is [email protected], or you can submit an online form from our website main page.

If your student will be picked up early, please send them with a note to the main office with their name, the time they will be picked up and the name of the person who will be picking them up. Students bring the note to the main office at the beginning of the school day and an early dismissal pass will be given to avoid having to call them out of class. They will be able to meet you here in the office and cut down the time waiting. Thank you!

School Fee Waiver Application

Once Approved, you can click on the link again to sign the consent to share information form.

Health Information Form for students

The Health Information Form provides valuable information regarding student health conditions.  These forms are critical in the identification of students who may need healthcare support in the school environment.  This form is required for ALL students and was included in our Back to School information on our website.  If you have already submitted the form, no further action is needed.

If you have not done so already, please email a completed Health Information Form to [email protected] or send a hard copy in with your student to the main office. 

Digital Consent Form Families, We Need Your Consent for Select Digital Resources

At Liberty our teachers will use a variety of digital resources to support student learning and promote communication and collaboration with students and families. Some of the digital resources your child may use this year will require your consent before they can be used.

You can find our school’s list of the resources that require parental consent here: https://libertyms.fcps.edu/adopteddigitalresources. Additionally, you can find more information about approved digital resources in FCPS here: https://www.fcps.edu/resources/technology/digital-resources.


Included on this page is also a link to a form where the enrolling parent or guardian will need to indicate whether or not their student is allowed to use the list of digital resources this year. This page also provides more information about how FCPS carefully reviews digital resources for approval and why we must request your consent before using certain tools. We encourage you to complete the parental consent for digital resources form as soon as possible, as your child will not be able to use the digital resources until we have received your permission. Please reach out to Shane Zavala, our School Based Technology Specialist at [email protected] if you have questions or concerns about the digital resources we’ve chosen to use this year.

Bus Notes and Attendance Reminders Bus Notes:

If your student is interested in riding the bus home with a friend, no problem! We need a parent note from each parent, one for the student riding the alternate bus and one from the parent approving another student to come to their house after school. Each note needs to be brought to the main office at the beginning of the school day and a bus pass will be available for the student riding the alternate bus at the end of the school day. Thank you!

Attendance Reminders:

If your student is going to miss part or a full day of school, please reach out to the attendance line in order to get their excused absence recorded. The phone number is 7039888181, the email is [email protected], or you can submit an online form from our website main page.

If your student will be picked up early, please send them with a note to the main office with their name, the time they will be picked up and the name of the person who will be picking them up. Students bring the note to the main office at the beginning of the school day and an early dismissal pass will be giving to avoid having to call them out of class. They will be able to meet you here in the office and cut down the time waiting. Thank you!
