Student ID replacement policy
As a result of our current economy and budget adjustments, the student ID replacement policy at Liberty High School is changing, effective Monday, March 2.
- No students will be allowed to charge a new ID card. Any student who cannot pay $5 for a new ID when it is needed will be sent to ISS for the remainder of the day for an ID card violation. The only exception will be for students who have not used their 2 free temporary ID cards this school year. They can still receive their 2 free temporary ID cards.
- Any student who owes money for previously charged ID cards will be required to pay this balance due. Students who do not pay the balance due by March 6: will be placed in ISS until the balance is paid, will not be permitted to purchase prom tickets until the balance is paid, and will have parking privileges suspended until the balance is paid.
- Students will be permitted to call a parent to bring an ID card, but these students will stay in ISS until the card is brought in by the parent.
Sound Producing Equipment—MP3, I-Pod, etc. - Students cannot use this equipment 7:30 a.m. until 3:15 p.m. If they’re using it, teachers will confiscate it and turn it in to Mrs. Gwinn. Students can use it after school dismissal. The return policy for this confiscated equipment is the same as for cell phones. See your agenda.
- School opens for students at 7:30 a.m.
It’s getting cold in the mornings. Please do not arrive to school until 7:30 so that you do not have to wait outside.
- School closes at 4:00 p.m.
The school’s office closes promptly at 4:00 p.m. Your transportation home should always arrive within 15 minutes of your dismissal time. However, no one will be available in the front office after 4:00 p.m. if your transportation is late. Winter is coming, and the afternoons are getting colder. Please stress that it is important that you be picked up promptly.
- Drivers, do not loiter in the parking lot.
You can lose your driving privileges / parking permit for loitering in the parking lot after school hours. Additionally, if you have friends who graduated in previous years returning after school to meet you here, they may not. Do not ask people to meet you here who are not current students. This problem is increasing this year, and these friends can be put on a NO TRESPASS NOTICE that will prevent them from coming on school grounds, including sporting events.
- Wear your ID and your ID only.
You can be given a discipline referral and ISS for wearing a friend’s ID. You are responsible for wearing your ID only on a school-approved lanyard. Students wearing blank ID cards will receive ISS as discipline. These cards were taken without permission. If you have 2 or more ID cards of your own, try keeping one in your backpack as a backup, rather than on the one that you probably left at home.
