OFFICE HOURS

2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR

As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year, the following will be required:

1.  All students (every single one) will need to have a Health Concerns Form completed.  The form can be found here.  

2.  Student’s entering 7th grade need to have a TDAP immunization prior to the first day of school. 

3.  Student’s with known health conditions (Asthma, Diabetes, Life Threatening Allergies, Seizures, Heart conditions, etc.) MUST have a Health Care Plan completed and signed by their Health Care Provider, and parents, PRIOR to the first day of school. 

4. Please find the new bell schedule here. Reg. Bell Schedule & Early Release Fridays.pdf


SAFEVISITOR

   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 Haller 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 
here.

POST MIDDLE SCHOOL CREATES A SAFE AND CARING ENVIRONMENT

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.

CHILD NUTRITION SERVICES ALERT
Arlington Public Schools' Child Nutrition Department
is preparing for the 2021-2022 school year and the
return of students to school.  School meal menus are
posted on the Child Nutrition Department's website here
(https://www.asd.wednet.edu/cms/One.aspx?portalId=3164321&pageId=4782232). 
At times during the upcoming months, supply chain
disruptions may cause us to provide meals that differ from
the menu posted for that day.  We are working closely with
our food and supplies vendors to prevent this from occurring,
but wanted to alert the community of this possibility.  If we do
encounter a supply chain issue, we will attempt to substitute
the schedule menu item with another that is as similar as
possible to the extent we are able to do so.  Please know that
we will always provide wholesome and nutritious meals each
and every day.  Thank you!
