Big changes await students in metro district


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - New teachers, new outfits and hopefully new adventures for students heading into the new school year.

School districts have been preparing for the big day just as much as the students, and have been making some big changes.

North Little Rock School District

The new North Little Rock High School is now up and running. In 2012, the taxpayers voted to fund the construction of this new facility. There used to be only three campuses for the high school, but as of Monday, August 17, 1,800 students will have classes at the new learning center.

A big tip officials have for parents, is to inform your child ahead of time about where to properly park. If you are dropping them off, learn the drop off zones.

NLR calls for end to violence


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – It’s a walk neighbors in North Little Rock never wanted to take.  Tired of saying goodbye to friends, they came together on Friday night to ask for peace to take over.

“It makes me feel good, because I’m able to honor my child, who I miss dearly,” said Amy Stivers, who lost her daughter seven years ago in a shooting. “You don’t want to wait until it happens to you.”

The walk was organized by two North Little Rock students.  One of them, Greg Fudge, is tired of going to funerals.

“Probably three to five students right off the bat that I could really think that I was close to,” Fudge said.

Park Hill starts first ever "Patio in Park Hill"

Park Hill starts first ever "Patio in Park Hill"

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The ParkHill Business and Merchant Association is hosting Park Hill's first ever food truck event.

"Patio in Park Hill" is a North Little Rock community based event that will have several food trucks, a local craft beer tent and area vendors present for the public to enjoy. This event will be happening on Thursday, August 27 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the LakeHill Shopping Center in Park Hill off John F. Kennedy Blvd. 

Since the recent passage of both a revised food truck ordinance and a law allowing beer sales in Park Hill, the business community wanted to create a new sense of spirit and neighborhood development. They believe a food truck event could do just that. 

For more information on this event, contact Kent Walker at kent@walkerlawfirm.us.
