Liberty Middle School News
Food Basket Drive
During the week of December 9-13, Liberty Middle School students will be asked to donate food items to be included in food baskets going to students who are served through our Back Pack Program each weekend. This the second year of this giving event. We were blown away last year by the generosity of our students and families. We exceeded our goals and hope to do the same again this year.
Once again we will be asking students to bring items to fill these baskets for our families to use over the holiday break. We hope to brighten the holiday season for 86 families from all our WFPS south-side elementary and secondary schools! This year each advisory group will be assigned a certain food item to bring. Students can also bring in any other non-perishable food items to add.
Along with the non-perishable items we are collecting, we are also asking each student who is able, to bring in one dollar that we can use to buy grocery gift cards to include in the food baskets so families can buy perishable items needed to feed their families over break.
Here’s where we need your help! Our goal is to provide a $25 gift card in each basket. We have almost 1200 students, so if each student brings a dollar, we are over halfway to our goal. We would love, if you are able, to donate monetarily to this cause! If you would like to donate, please drop off donations at the Liberty Middle School office by Friday, Dec. 13. Cash, check, or gift cards to any of our local grocery stores would be accepted and appreciated.
We thank you for your consideration, and invite you to participate in making the holidays brighter for many of our Mustang families!
December 6th – December 10th
Liberty students and staff will be participating in the Golden Drive by collecting socks for an area foundation that delivers to each shelter. Donations of new socks can be turned in the commons before school, during lunch, or after school. If you prefer students can bring in $25 to purchase American Heart Association pair of Nike socks and we will donate a socks on their behalf.
All donations allow your child’s name to be put into a bucket, giving them a chance to spend the day shadowing our SRO (School Resource Officer). Donations start tomorrow and will end at the end of the day Tuesday 12/10/19.
We invite you to join us in helping our community keep people’s feet warmer this winter.
This message was brought to you by Emma Briggs and Kaitlyn Hoefs (Team Fury Students).
(If you have questions email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.)
Our school hours are from 8:30 am until 3:30 pm. We expect students to be in school and on time every day that they are not sick or unable to attend for serious reasons. There are many positive benefits from regular school attendance. If a student is absent from school, we need a parent or guardian to call the school office at (701) 356-2671 before 9:30am. If we have not received a call by that time, our automated system will call you at 9:40 am.
If your student is going to be leaving the school during the day, a parent or guardian must call the school or send a note with your student to give to the office. Your student must check out in the office when they leave and check back in when they return. Students must be responsible for coming to the office without being called at checkout time. We do not like to call students out of classrooms; it is very disruptive to the class.
Illness Policy Reminder
As cold and flu season falls upon us, we want to share a few reminders regarding the district’s illness policy:
Please do not send a sick child to school to be assessed by the nurse. If your child has an elevated temperature, rash, diarrhea, or is vomiting at home, DO NOT send the child to school.
Children will the following symptoms should not be sent to school and/or school activities:
- Thermometer indicates a temperature of 100 degrees or more
- Undiagnosed rash or sores
- Contagious infection diagnosed by a health care provider
Children may not return to school until:
- Their temperature has remained below 100 degrees for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or other medications.
- There has been no vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours without the use of over the counter medications.
- When a student has been diagnosed with a contagious infection and was given prescription medication, the student may not return to school until they have taken the medication a full 24 hours and their temperature has remained below 100 degrees for 24 hours.
The Liberty PTO is requesting your assistance with our alternative fundraiser from now through March 1st. Instead of sending students home with the task of selling merchandise, collecting money, and delivering goods, we are hoping you will support the PTO with a donation. All money raised goes towards the students and faculty at Liberty Middle School. (We hope you appreciate our sense of humor! ? The fundraising form is located HERE. The students will also be getting a copy of this fundraising form and you can also see it on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WFLibertyPTO
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org

School-Based Sealant Program
Seal! North Dakota School-Based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program
In 2012, The North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) implemented the Seal! North Dakota School-Based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program. The dentist and/or dental hygienist visit each school two times a year (fall and spring), to provide direct preventive services. Services include: oral health education, dental exam/screening, teeth cleaning, dental sealants and fluoride varnish application. A parent/guardian signed consent form is required to participate in the Seal! North Dakota Program.
Any student who does not already have a regular dentist may sign up if they have a completed and signed parent/guardian consent form. A result sheet (what the child had done), toothbrush, floss, and a small prize will be provided to each child that is seen. Maple Family Dental will be providing the services at your school; watch for more information to come!
