Happy Friday, Mets Nation!

Important Message from Our Director 


On Wednesday, March 14th, in an effort to show our solidarity with other schools around the  nation, as we all mourn with the families affected by the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman  Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida; our students and staff will have the option to  participate in an organized walk-out and hold a moment of silence for the victims of this horrific  tragedy.   


In light of that event and others like it, I feel it important to communicate to our eStem High  School parents that your child's safety is a top priority. Our school has several precautions in  place to keep our students and staff members safe. All eStem schools work closely with the UA  Little Rock and/or Little Rock Police departments to ensure that we are as proactive as possible  in protecting our most precious assets, people.    


We recently had a very productive meeting with high ranking members of the LRPD in which we  discussed the effectiveness of our crisis management drills and how to make them even better. I’m  elated to inform you that the conversation ended with LRPD representatives saying that eStem  schools are some of the safest they’ve seen in the Little Rock area.     


Please know that we have multiple preemptive measures in place to keep our building secure,  however, should the unfortunate occur, we have a very detailed crisis management plan for our  teachers, students, and staff members to follow. Rest assured, in the event of a school  emergency, all eStem parents would be notified through our various forms of communication  about the emergency and any subsequent school dismissal changes.    


Every student, educator, and staff member has the right to a safe and secure place to come each  day. It is my duty to work diligently to make sure that eStem High provides an environment  where each of its stakeholders feels safe. I appreciate your continued support.


Mrs. Johnecia Howard

High School Director
