Dear Students and Families,
Beginning Tuesday, December 1, 2020, Liberty Local Schools will shift to remote learning through at least Sunday, January 3, 2021. The move is being done in accordance with recommendations from the Trumbull County Board of Health as key indicators in the county continue to rise above levels that local health officials consider safe. On Tuesday, November 24, 2020, the Trumbull County Board of Health passed the COVID-19 health advisory for Trumbull County recommending all public schools within the county transition to remote learning through the end of the 2020 calendar year.
What does this mean for my student?
The shift to remote learning impacts all PK-12 students within our school district
All athletics and activities will be suspended through at least December 22, 2020, at which point our district will reassess the COVID-19 situation
Remote learning for all Liberty students will begin Monday, November 30, 2020.
Students in grades 7-12 who are in the maroon and gold cohorts will be expected to follow their typical, daily school schedule for the duration of remote learning.
Full-time 7-12 remote students currently on Apex, will continue to follow their regular schedule
Students in grades PK-6 who are in the maroon and gold cohorts will be expected to log into Google Classroom and follow their typical schedule.
Full-time PK-6 remote students currently on Edgenuity, will continue to follow their regular schedule
What are the requirements for the return to face-to-face instruction?
The recommendation from the Trumbull County Board of Health is that school districts remain in remote learning through at least the end of the 2020 calendar year before transitioning to the next phase. Therefore, Liberty Local Schools will remain in remote learning through at least Sunday, January 3, 2021. The earliest day on which face-to-face learning may resume is Monday, January 4, 2021.
Resuming face-to-face instruction will depend on key public health indicators. If indicators do not improve through the end of the calendar year, remote learning will be extended. We will closely monitor the situation and will communicate updates regarding potential changes.
How Can We Move Forward?
As much as we all want to see children back in school, we have committed to following the scientific recommendations of health professionals for the safety of our students, families, staff, and community. We must continue to come together as a community to get our key public health indicators back in line.
