Watch your head UPDATE

Posted By on Fri, Nov 14, 2008 at 4:09 PM

Rumor watch on the Pulaski County School District:

1) At this moment, no special school board meeting is scheduled for Saturday, as some had heard. There is another special meeting Nov. 25, which was set at a contentious meeting last night. I gather that some administrators' future would be cloudy, if certain school board members could decide their fate unilaterally. Superintendent James Sharpe and other administrators are on the hot seat for failure to act sooner on damaged roofs at two schools. My source continues to insist a special board meeting will be held Saturday. Board President Mildred Tatum conferred with Sharpe this morning at district offices.

2) A news release is expected this afternoon on whether the Clinton Elementary in Sherwood will remain open or be closed temporarily for roof problems said to be similar, but not as serious, as those that forced the abrupt closure of the Crystal Hill Elementary. A district spokesman says the Clinton decision will be announced following a cabinet meeting and posted to the website after it is made around 2:30 p.m. I wouldn't be surprised if school officials take the safe approach -- another temporary closure while repairs are made.

UPDATE: Classes at Clinton Magnet Elmentary will be cancelled Monday and Tuesday to allow for "a complete review and assessment of the structural integrity of the building."

Children are to return to school Wednesday morning at First Assembly Church, 4501 Burrow Drive, North Little Rock. A parents meeting is set Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 6:30 p.m. at First Assembly.

For more details, check the district website. Heres' the district's news release.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
