Open Enrollment for LRSD's 2015-16 School Year Now Underway


Monday, January 26, 2015 begins the two week open enrollment period for the Little Rock School District - January 26-February 6.  The first week will occur in the Family Life Center at St. Mark Baptist Church, 5722 W. 12th - during which time the Student Registration Office (SRO) will be closed.  The second week will be held at the SRO, 501 Sherman St.


In order to streamline the process, eliminate the possibility of long lines, and improve the customer service experience for patrons, SRO has implemented new plans for the first week at St. Mark.


Because the largest number of new students seeking enrollment are P3 and P4 (3-4-year-olds), SRO has designated Monday and Tuesday, January 26-27, for P3 and P4 students who do not have any siblings.  Wednesday is designated for P3 and P4 students who have siblings grades K-12. Thursday, K-12 students with no siblings are encouraged to register.  Friday is open to all grades.


The second week, February 2-6, the open enrollment process will return to the SRO at 501 Sherman for all students, regardless of grade.


Those who are new to the district are also requested to adhere to the schedule above.  Students who have not moved, have not changed addresses, or who are not seeking admission to a LRSD magnet school or academy (Geyer Springs Gifted and Talented Academy or Forest Heights STEM Academy) do not have to do anything and will automatically roll up at their assigned school.

Follow These Tips to Prevent the Flu

The Little Rock School District would like to provide you with tips to help keep your family healthy during flu season. While the district is not experiencing any issues related to the flu, in light of recent health developments across the country, you may want to review the following health tips. The best protection against the flu is getting a flu shot every year. Health officials remind us of these four tips, which if practiced daily are the best defense to keep yourself and your family well:

  3. avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  4. avoid physical contact with anyone who displays symptoms
