Community Budget Forums will be held on Feb. 28 at Post Middle School and April 11 at Eagle Creek Elementary School.
Arlington Public Schools is facing the need for making future budget reductions to take effect next year. Our district has strong financial management and has maintained a healthy fund balance, but several issues combined are making budget reductions necessary:

· Pandemic-induced federal and state aid are ceasing
· Enrollment is recovering more slowly than hoped
· The district has continued to provide high levels of services many of which were previously bolstered by federal/state aid
· On the heels of this pandemic, the Board directed fund balance be used as 'rainy-day-one-time-funds' in order to continue to mitigate the impacts and accelerate learning, even as costs are rising, rather than a formal reduction in staff for 2022-23
· We estimate dipping into minimum reserves by roughly half, by the end of 2022-23
· State funding models (reformulated by the legislature in 2018) continues to lead to funding gaps
· The district is working to make comprehensive reductions across the district to take effect for 2023-24 (the year after this one)
· There are many priorities of great magnitude and difficult decisions will need to be made to right-size the budget

Safe Visitor
We use Safe Visitor as our check-in process.  Similar to all other schools in Arlington, we must scan your ID and print you a visitor pass to wear at the main office if you wish to enter the instructional area.  If you are on campus to pick up your student, please visit the main office so we can ensure custodial permissions exist prior to the student leaving campus.  To enter Post Middle School, visitors and late entry students will have to press the button at the main entrance and speak to a staff member prior to being "buzzed in."  Late students must check in at the tardy kiosk in the main office prior to going to class.  Thank you for stopping into the main office with every visit, regardless of your purpose - we're always glad to see you and check you in!

We fully understand these changes may not be the most convenient for every visit you make, but the additional security it affords is crucial for helping us provide the safest campus possible for your student each day.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation with our campus security procedures.

If you plan on chaperoning a field trip, a dance, a Hootenanny, being a classroom volunteer, or being on campus for any extended time period, you will need to complete a background check every school year.  The background check can be done

Post Middle School creates a safe and caring environment for students
The teachers and staff at Post Middle School want to make sure our school is a safe and caring place for your child. As stated in the school board policies and procedures and in our family handbook, harassment, intimidation and bullying will not be tolerated in our school. Our teachers and staff go through training at the beginning of the year to recognize the signs of harassment, intimidation and bullying and report such behavior accordingly.

If a student feels harassed or threatened in some way, they can make a complaint at the school. Informal reports may also be made to any staff member. Such complaints will be appropriately investigated and consistently handled. Students may also submit a report using the SafeSchools Alert incident reporting system that’s available on the front page of our school’s website.

Your child’s safety and wellbeing is a priority for us. We want them to thrive in a positive environment that promotes learning. Please call our main office if you have any questions.
