LRSD offering flu vaccine to students


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Another fall brings another flu season, and one central Arkansas district is doing its part to keep its students healthy.

On Monday, the Little Rock School District is providing the flu vaccine to the students at Booker Arts Magnet.

Superintendent Dr. Dexter Suggs is encouraging all of his 25,000 students and 4,000 educators to attend one of the clinics to get the vaccine.

"It's critical. Especially when you're interacting with kids on a regular basis. It's critical that you have this particular shot," said Suggs.

The free flu shots will continue at various campuses through Monday, November 17.

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - The transition to high school can be an exciting time for some, but for others, it can be intimidating.
 
"There's a lot of kids, and the hallways are really crowded, so it was scary to me,” explained Tavonia Smith.

“It was a big change,” added Mondraul Jernigan. “At first I really didn't think it was going to be as hard as it was.”

QUITMAN, Ark. (KTHV) – If you entered the Quitman High School gym on Friday, you would have seen a winter wonderland. A carpet of snow blanketed the gym floor, a machine pumped snow into the air, and one very popular song from the movie “Frozen” belted through the speakers as students and faculty gathered together to celebrate Emma Day.

What is Emma Day? It’s a very special celebration of one tough little girl who is battling stage-four osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. The Panama, Okla., native has been receiving treatments at UAMS right here in Little Rock and happened to meet one of Quitman’s teachers—Theresa Hawks—who was undergoing her own therapy for cervical cancer.

UALR Green Dot program hopes to reduce violence and sexual assaults

UALR Green Dot program hopes to reduce violence and sexual assaults


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - One in five women is sexually assaulted on a college campus and often chooses not to report it. "There have been times in my life where that's none of my business type thing," Kalan Horton, a student at UALR says. But after the abduction and killing of a University of Arkansas at Little Rock student named Patricia Guardado, the university wanted everyone to feel responsible for changing the culture.

Dr. Erin Finzer with the Green Dot program says, "We know that traditional violence and crime prevention efforts that focus on perpetrators or victims don't really work because crime statistics haven't changed in 20 some odd years."

UALR is the first and only Arkansas school investing in resources to host the Green Dot program on a university campus. Finzer continues, "It's important for the bystander, for all of us, to feel empowered and able to intervene."
