Important Flu Safety Tips

Dear Parents:

With news that the flu epidemic is impacting families nationwide, we wanted to remind you and your students of important health tips.  Health officials remind us of these four tips which are common sense and practiced daily, but are the best defense to keep yourself and your family well:

  1. wash your hands frequently
  2. use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing
  3. avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  4. avoid physical contact with anyone who displays symptoms

Flu symptoms include:

  • fever
  • cough
  • sore throat
  • chills
  • fatigue
  • body aches
  • Vomiting
  • diarrhea

If your child exhibits any of these symptoms, please do not send him or her to school, just as a precautionary measure and to ensure that others do not become sick as well.

In our schools we have implemented a daily routine to emphasize frequent hand washing, using hand sanitizer when entering a room and wiping down the desks at the end of the day with disinfectant wipes.

The district works closely with the Arkansas Department of Health and the CDC and has a pandemic flu policy in place; however, we also need to work together as a school family to prevent the spread of the flu.  Thank you for your attention to this very important and timely reminder. 

The Little Rock School District has submitted an Arkansas Arts Council grant application for Cloverdale and Henderson Middle schools

The Little Rock School District has submitted an Arkansas Arts Council grant application for Cloverdale and Henderson Middle schools. The AR Arts Council grant provides funding for an in school drama elective providing an additional arts option. Community input is invited.

You may have already received information from your child’s school related to class assignments on inclement weather days or any other day that school may be closed during an unforeseen emergency – known as the Alternate Method Instruction (AMI) plans.  Please read the letter below and follow instructions sent home by your child’s teachers. 

While we do not anticipate any inclement weather in the Little Rock area in the immediate forecast, we wanted to remind you of the AMI plans for your student.  If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school.

Meantime, in the event of inclement weather, LRSD will notify you the following ways:

  • Blackboard (ParentLink) – phone calls, email, texts and Little Rock School District App (it’s a good time to download the App)
  • LRSD.org – District website
  • LRSDTV.org – District Channel, Comcast Channel 4; U-verse Channel 99
  • Social Media – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter (it’s a good time to connect to us using our social media platforms)
