    LPS Summer School 2020

    Liberty Public Schools has been hard at work the past several weeks preparing for our face-to-face summer school program that runs July 8 – 31, 2020.  As you likely know, the face-to-face school experience in LPS will not look like it did prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Many precautions have been put into place, following recommendations by local, state, and national health officials.  It is our top priority to provide our students and staff with a safe and healthy learning environment while at school.  Below is important information that we hope you find useful as we prepare to welcome students on July 8, 2020.

  • Summer School Incentive Program

    Summer School Bookstore:
    Students who participate and engage in classroom activities will have their name included in a daily book drawing to come and choose a book from the Summer School Bookstore.

    Perfect Attendance Incentive:
    Students who have perfect attendance the entire program will be eligible for a drawing on the last day. Each building will be giving away one Kindle Fire 7 and one Wireless Stereo Earbud.  

    Summer School Discipline Policy 
    Summer School will be a fun-filled and challenging learning experience for students.  To ensure that all students are safe and able to learn, the same behavior appropriate during the regular school year will be expected.  Students are expected to treat all staff and students at school with respect, as well as respect the property of others, while demonstrating safe and appropriate behavior in and about the school.  To assist students in developing desirable behavior habits, educators will provide an environment that is safe, positive, and challenging.  Students feel safe and learning improves when they have clear, logical, and consistent boundaries.  Teachers and administrators work as a team to provide the needed structure and support to help each student learn to take responsibility for their actions.  Parents/Guardians will be kept informed on any concerns and will be asked to partner with the school in helping their children learn to make good choices.  The Summer School Program will not utilize detentions or in-school suspension because of limited summer staff.  Because of this during an instance where a detention or in-school suspension would be an appropriate consequence the student may be sent home or asked not to attend part, or the remainder of the Summer School program.

    Bulletin:  The Missouri General Assembly may adjust funding for summer school at any time.  As a result, the Liberty Summer School program may be adjusted or modified based on state funding.
