To All Connected to Liberty Union-Thurston Schools,

With the beginning of April, these daily updates will not have the general information that was posted all last month.  However, you can always refer back to previous updates for that information.            Link:  http://www.libertyunion.org/COVID-19Information.aspx


Updated: April 2, 2020 at 3:30 P.M.



            Completely unrelated to the current COVID-19 situation, the Liberty Union-Thurston Local School District will be having a controlled burn of an area behind the middle school building near the Land Lab entrance.  The school district is working in conjunction with the Basil Joint Fire District, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.  The school district has partnered with a Fish and Wildlife Biologist from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  Upon his recommendation, some of the prairie grasses behind the middle school need a fresh start and a controlled burn is an effective solution.

This controlled burn, under supervision of Basil Joint Fire District, will occur on FRIDAY, APRIL 3rd.  The planned time of the burn is 4:00 P.M. However, that time may need to be adjusted slightly depending on wind conditions.  Please do not be alarmed if you see fire trucks, smoke, or fire near the middle school on Friday anytime in the afternoon.
