KING ELEMENTARY: Closed through Wednesday due to the flu. Little Rock School District

The Little Rock School District has closed Rockefeller and Martin Luther King Jr. elementary schools through Wednesday at the recommendation of state health officials, according to LRSD spokeswoman Pamela Smith in a note to district parents. The schools have reported a significant increase in suspect flu cases. The two-day closure will allow the LRSD custodial team and a private company that specializes in sanitizing buildings to disinfect the buildings. Custodial teams will also disinfect all other school buildings as a precaution, Smith reports.
