 Post Middle School Purpose Statement

As we prepare for our future ahead of us, our purpose at Post Middle School is to develop our dreams through discovering our strengths so that we can achieve our goals.  We will do this through trying our best, and being responsible while having fun and making life-long friendships.

The Following are Ways We Commit To Our School Purpose Statement:

  • Trying our best
  • Making new friends
  • Discovering our strengths and improving them
  • Achieving our goals
  • Being responsible
  • Following our dreams
  • Being Growth-Minded
  • Having fun!







      BUS PASSES!

Due to over-crowded buses and the safety of our students, we are unable to issue bus passes for the following routes: 4, 8, 10 & 17.  Please plan accordingly if your student is trying to go  home with a friend that rides one of those buses.
Permanent bus passes that have already been approved and issued are still good to go.

Baby pics
Our Yearbook Class wants a picture of your 8th grade student as a baby!  

Want to be a part of a long standing tradition here at Post?  8th graders, grab a photo of you as a baby and turn it in BY November 27th!!  No late entries will be accepted.  Papers were sent home with your student in early November.

Please put the photo in an envelope with your FIRST and LAST name and FIRST period teacher written clearly on the envelope and turn it into the office.  Your picture will be returned to you as soon as Yearbook is done with them.

Immunizations:
Law requires immunization compliance for all students.  Students who are not in compliance could be exempted from being able to attend school.  Read more about the state's vaccine requirements for school age children at www.doh.wa.gov/YouandYourFamily/Immunization


The Arlington School District is committed to providing a free education to the students we serve.  This year there will be no extensive supply lists you need to fill. 
We ask that each student have a three-ring binder with dividers, a supply of pencils and a PE Uniform (Navy blue shorts and a plain white Tshirt).  All other items will be supplied by the classroom teacher.  We ask that students respect their supplies and use them wisely.

Post has athletics available to our 7th & 8th graders during the school year.  We have 4 "seasons" of sports:

Fall (Sept-Nov) - Cross Country
Winter 1 (Nov-Jan)  - Boys Basketball & Girls Volleyball
Winter 2 (Jan-Mar) - Girls Basketball & Wrestling (Co-ed)
Spring (Mar-May) - Track

See the Athletics tab for more information on the requirements and paperwork.  
**Sports physicals are good for 2 years, if you're due for one or don't have one yet, summer is a GREAT time to get one before the rush of the school year starts!!**


The Arlington Public Schools Board of Directors approved the elimination of middle and high school athletic participation fees at its meeting on July 8.  The board annually reviews fees that are charged to students.  The fee discontinuation will start with all 2019-2020 sports.  The fee to participate in sports was $50 at the middle schools and $100 for high school sports.

The teachers and staff at Post Middle School want to make sure our school is a safe and caring place for your child. If a student feels harassed or threatened in some way, they can make a report at the office. 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.

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.

Your child’s safety and well being is a priority for us. We want them to thrive in a positive environment that promotes learning. Please call our main office, at 360-618-6450, if you have any questions.
