In-Classroom Instruction Thriving

Earlier today, the Poudre School District issued a district-wide notice announcing all of its instructional delivery will be home-based remote-learning as of 23 November 2020. This notice has no bearing on Liberty Common School. 

Thanks to the extra precautions, and safe-habits discipline observed by students, families, and staff, COVID-19 incidents at Liberty remain remarkably low. The school’s success empowers our faculty to deliver our world-class in-classroom instruction.  As usual, this entails ongoing prudent evaluation of public-health concerns.

County public-health officials remain both impressed, and supportive of the protocols we have in place to help prevent the spread of COVID, and other viruses among Liberty students, and staff.  As always, everyone is encouraged to evaluate their own risk tolerance, and are empowered to exercise their right and responsibility to direct the education and upbringing of their children. 

Thanks to our extraordinary IT department, remote observation of classrooms from home remains an option for families for which this accommodation is unavoidable.

We have achieved something unique, and somewhat heroic in public education.  Public-health officials advising us remain confident in-classroom instruction can continue with little disruption.  

Sustaining our well-designed safety protocols has yielded great results.  Let’s all keep at it, and continue rallying around Colorado’s most excellent school.


Sick Student at Home? Follow This Protocol:

If your child is unwell, determine whether symptoms are “major” or “minor,” and follow this health-department guidance. According to Larimer County public-health officers, illness symptoms are “major” if the patient is feeling feverish or chilled, temperature of 100.4F or higher, loss of taste or smell, new or unexplained persistent cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing. “Minor” symptoms include sore throat, runny nose/congestion, muscle or body aches, headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Any child exhibiting major or minor symptoms should not come to school.

When your child may return to school:
-When your child has minor symptoms only and the symptoms resolve within 48 hours.
-If your child has any major symptoms lasting longer than 24 hours or minor symptoms lasting longer than 48 hours, your child needs a doctor's note with an alternate diagnosis before returning to school, a negative Abbot ID or PCR COVID-19 test, or must wait 10 days from the onset of symptoms before returning, with the last 24 hours being fever-free.
-If your child has a negative Abbot ID or PCR COVID-19 test, he or she may return to school once all symptoms have cleared for 24 hours.

-Please inform the school immediately should you receive a positive COVID test result per the in-person learning expectations established at the beginning of the school year.
