Children may be dropped off in the morning beginning at 8:35-8:55 A.M. Children dropped off in the front of the school must be escorted by an adult into the office and signed in.

Can you explain lunch money and meals?
The Clarksville-Montgomery County School Board has adopted the Offer vs. Serve program for all of our school cafeterias. This means that the students have choices as to what to eat. The children are given at least 5 choices from the 4 major food groups for lunch and must select a minimum of 3 different items to be considered a complete meal. Our department tries to offer two main entree choices each day, but students are allowed only one entree with the meal price. There will be a charge for additional items. Students will be serving themselves, but cafeteria staff and others often offer help with the younger students. Serving utensils are available for all food items.

Can you tell me a little about Liberty Elementary?
In "The Land of Liberty", you can expect every child to be treated as someone special. Our schedule is based upon a eight-day rotation. In this rotation, all children will be provided an opportunity to enjoy uninterrupted language and math blocks of instructional time. Additionally, all students have the opportunity to enjoy physical education, music, art, library, and guidance. The schedule accommodates common planning times for teachers, which is essential in developing instructional strategies that meet the needs of all children. It also prevents any classroom from "missing out" on a special class due to inclement weather and school closing.
