PASSPORT DAY!  8/29 2pm - 6pm

Post's Passport Day/Open House is Thursday, August 29th from 2pm-6pm.  We encourage all parents to attend Passport Day with their child to ensure a strong start to the school year.  The goal of this day is to:
* Provide students with their schedules
* Meet teachers
* Receive important information about Post
* Tour the  campus
* Have student pictures taken for both the yearbook and for individual     purchase
* To purchase needed items. 
After your son or daughter receives their schedule they will have an opportunity to walk their schedule and meet their teachers.

Picture packets will be mailed with our Welcome Back to School letter mid August.

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

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.

YEARBOOKS $25/$30:
Post has 3 windows to purchase yearbooks.  During these sale periods, they can be purchased with a credit card online through Family Access or cash/check in the office.  Yearbooks are $25.00 each during the first sale window and $30.00 the last two.  The books will be handed out in June, before school gets out. 
The yearbook sale dates are as follows:
Aug 26 - Sept 7 ($25.00)
Jan 21 - Feb 1 ($30.00)
3rd sale dates TBD ($30.00 Cash only at student window)

Falcon Sports

Cross Country practice will start on the first day of school, 09/05 

Please make sure your student has a current physical and the online paperwork filled out in order to participate in the first practice.

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.
