Little Rock School District

Please help us share this important message with LRSD families.

The Otter Creek Elementary building will be open for students to receive grab-and-go lunch service from 10:3 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. today.

UPDATED 10:53AM

Good Morning, LRSD Families:

This is to inform you that, in conjunction with the City of Little Rock, LRSD schools will offer grab-and-go lunch service today from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. The exception is Mann Magnet. That site is closed today due to a power outage. Students may go to any school or the next nearest sites to Mann: Washington, Rockefeller and Booker elementary schools. Rock Region Metro will provide free bus rides to schools for all children up to age 18. Children 11 and under will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Today's menu will be chef salad, fresh fruit and milk. We will follow up with this afternoon regarding additional plans. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to better serve you.

Little Rock School District

ALL LRSD SCHOOLS CLOSED MONDAY (2/10) & TUESDAY (2/11) DUE TO FLU CONCERNS. Classes will resume on Wednesday (2/12).

Dear Parents:

As you may be aware, some schools in the Little Rock School District have experienced higher than normal absenteeism at the student and staff levels due to the flu season. Because we are concerned about how the flu is impacting our community, we have been monitoring both student and staff absentee rates over the past several weeks. On Friday, February 7, 2020, we had to release students early at Geyer Springs Early Childhood Center as a result of not having enough staff to meet required student-staff ratios. Last week, we also closed two elementary schools for two days after reports of high percentages of students being sick.

Today, February 9th, we have received an inordinate amount of calls by staff reporting that they are sick. The number of calls that we received by 5 p.m. totaled more than 250 staff members out. This nearly doubles the number of staff who called in on similar days during the previous week.

Due to these high numbers, we will take what we believe to be the necessary steps to create the safest option for the health and well-being of both our students and staff and will close schools Monday and Tuesday, February 10-11, 2020. We are so sorry to make this announcement at this late hour, but the staff absentee rate has ballooned this afternoon.

We will not be able to use Alternate Method of Instruction (AMI) days over the next two days of school being cancelled. We will have to make up those missed days. AMI days may only be used for inclement weather, a power outage, or some other unscheduled event. The decision of how we make up those days will be determined at a later time. Possible make-up days could be accomplished using Saturdays, Spring Break or the end of the school year.

We hope that students, staff and parents are able to utilize these next two days to get rest and recover. We will use our maintenance staff to provide additional cleaning at school sites. Parents, please remember:

 If your child has a fever to take him or her to the doctor
 It’s not too late to get a flu shot
 Fluids, rest and proper nutrition are essential
 Encourage frequent hand-washing

We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to our students and staff returning to school healthy and ready to finish the school year strong!
Thank you and have a good evening.

Join us for an OCE PTA Meeting on Wednesday, October 16 at 5:30 in the school Cafeteria. We look forward to seeing YOU there!

Join us for the OCE PTA Back to School Dance on Friday, September 20 from 6pm-8pm. $2 for OCE students & $3 for non-students/Parents. Students must be accompanied during the dance. No drop-offs allowed.

Attention LRSD Parents and Guardians:
