“The Hidden in Plain Sight (HIPS) program is an IN-PERSON interactive program for adults to be educated about the signs of risky behavior in teens and young adults. It touches on drug and alcohol use, mental health concerns, eating disorders, risky sexual behaviors, and more. This is a hands-on learning adventure for PARENTS AND GUARDIANS ONLY! We guide you through a presentation that opens your eyes to what is right in front of you. This program begins with a setup of a teenager’s bedroom which includes close to 100 “red flags” that indicate risky behavior. Parents are encouraged to touch everything and identify our red flags.”

PTA is sponsoring a Fall Supply Drive for the two low-tech maker-spaces at Liberty.  We are accepting supply donations starting Tuesday, October 25th, 2022 through Tuesday, November 1st, 2022. 

What is a maker space?  Why is it important?  Why should I help support this?

A maker space is a designated space in a school where students-alongside staff can create, problem-solve, and develop skills, talents, thinking, and mental rigor.  These dedicated spaces afford students more opportunities to expand their learning experience.

Please help us provide much-needed supplies for our Liberty students.  Donated supplies can be new or leftover supplies you have around your house.

Each month, the Office of Family and School Partnerships sends out a newsletter for military-connected families. If interested, please sign up for that newsletter (under “Division Administration News and Updates” then “Professional Learning & Family Engagement”) or other topics on the FCPS website.

SOS Screening (Signs of Suicide)

Liberty Middle School will be conducting the SOS screening with 7th grade students on Tuesday, October 11th (Pride and Explorers teams) and Tuesday, October 25th (Patriots and Navigators teams)

Students will watch age-appropriate video clips and participate in a guided discussion about depression, suicide, and what to do if they are concerned about a friend. Following the video, students will complete a brief depression screening tool. This tool cannot provide a diagnosis of depression but does indicate whether a young person should be referred for evaluation by a mental health professional.  Follow-up calls to parents will be made if necessary.

We encourage you to visit www.sossignsofsuicide.org/parent for information on warning signs for youth suicide, useful resources, and some of the key messages students will learn. You can also view this parent video to learn more.

Transportation: 

BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS:

Bus stops and route information will be shared with families via the ParentVUE accounts beginning August 9. For more information about bus transportation, including how to access the Bus Delay Notification System, visit the Transportation page.  Transportation will load that information in SIS StudentVUE and ParentVUE under Student Info > Transportation > (mobile app, select Additional Info). If you do not plan on your student using transportation services, please edit your transportation intent information and select “no” for transportation. It can be updated at a later date but will take 3-5 business days to process.

THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR:

Bus stops and route information can be accessed by families via the ParentVUE account. For more information about bus transportation, including how to access the Bus Delay Notification System, visit the Transportation page.  Transportation will load that information in SIS StudentVUE and ParentVUE under Student Info > Transportation > (mobile app, select Additional Info). If you do not plan on your student using transportation services, please edit your transportation intent information and select “no” for transportation. It can be updated at a later date but will take 3-5 business days to process.

 

Kiss and Ride Procedures: 

Kiss and Ride-parents should enter and exit from the entrance closest to Compton Road.  Please follow the signs and directions of school staff. Students may exit their vehicles starting at 7:10 a.m.

Please remember SAFETY and PATIENCE when dropping off (7:10 a.m.) or picking up your student in the Kiss and Ride loop. In the mornings, please do not pull to the inside and pass cars as students are getting out. If there is a slow or stalled vehicle, a staff member will direct you around when it is safe to do so. 30 seconds seems like forever when you are in a rush. If possible, your student may walk or ride the bus.

In the afternoons, once students have exited the building and reached their cars, staff will then direct traffic out safely. Thank you very much for your patience and cooperation!

ParentVue Accounts:

If you need to set up a ParentVue account or need assistance to reset your password please contact Jennifer Carnahan at [email protected] for assistance. (Please allow 1-2 business days for response.)

 Lunch:

As of June 2022, free lunch from the county has expired. Beginning August 22nd lunch will return to priced meals. For more information on prices and lunch account prepayments please visit: 2022-2023 Lunch Information (Prices and Pre-payment)​​​​​​​

This year Fairfax County Public Schools announced its policy for providing Free or Reduced-Price Meals (FRM) for children served under the National School Lunch and/or School Breakfast programs. For more information and enrollment in this program please visit: Free and Reduced Meals Information
