We understand that many of our families have been negatively affected by this pandemic and are unable to purchase uniforms for their students. Please be aware that teachers and administrators will expect students to report to school in presentable, distraction-free attire. Those who do not will be subject to disciplinary actions. Thank you for being a part of the North Little Rock School District.

For instance, if you have two children who will participate in the Virtual Academy, then you must complete two forms. And so on. https://forms.gle/LU5Q2daxz9yyoYMe9 If you have already registered your student(s), thank you.
Water bottles will be allowed for students. All water fountains in the building are closed. When sending a bottle with your child, be sure his/her name is clearly labeled. Choose a distinctive bottle to prevent it from being confused with another child's.
Face Coverings are required for every student and employee of the NLRSD. Coverings are required to cover both nose and mouth. Coverings must not have any words, images, phrases, symbols, etc. that are vulgar, inappropriate and would disrupt learning. They do not have to be a solid color and can be fun for students to wear.
