district Equity

Each month, the Equity Department develops themes that focus the equity work for our district. The goal of the monthly theme is to provide resources and supports for teachers in order to bring awareness and appreciation to the diverse population of students in our district.

June's theme is Pride Month. Every year, during the month of June, the LGBT community celebrates in a number of different ways. Across the globe, various events are held during this special month as a way of recognizing the influence LGBTQ+ people have had around the world. Why was June chosen? Because it is when the Stonewall Riots took place, way back in 1969. Please click this link to find resources for this month’s theme.

Cool Bus engaging students in learning this summer!
The Arlington Public Schools “Cool Bus” will be traveling throughout theCool Bus Arlington community this summer providing math and reading opportunities for students during the long break. The bus will be staffed by four teachers and a Spanish Interpreter-Tutor who will provide grade-appropriate books to check out along with giving an opportunity for the family to join in fun math games.

“During the summer, many children lose knowledge and skills, and participating in summer learning activities can help prevent this,” said Karl Olson, director of categorical programs. “This is a great opportunity to keep up with math and reading while having fun at the same time.”

The Cool Bus will be visiting the locations listed below on Wednesdays between June 29 and Aug. 3.

9:30 a.m. - 10:15 a.m. Eagle Creek Elementary
10:30 a.m. - 11:15 a.m. Presidents Elementary

1:30 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. Mobile Estates on 67th Avenue
2:30 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. Crown Ridge (Crown Ridge and Vista)

Area children can access meals at no cost this summer
Meals at no cost will be available to all children this summer in the community ages 1-18 (21 if part of a Special Education Transitions program). Beginning Tuesday, June 28, 2022 and running through Thursday, July 21, 2022 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, children can receive breakfast from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. and lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Presidents Elementary School (505 East 3rd Street, Arlington).

“During COVID-19, there were federal waivers allowing parents to pick up multiple meals at a time for their children to eat at home,” said Ed Aylesworth, director of nutrition and support services. “This summer, the waivers have ended. Therefore, we are returning to standard practices for the Summer Feeding program which requires children to eat all meals on site and only one meal can be served at a time. Parents are no longer able to pick up and take home multiple meals for their children.”

The Arlington Food Bank will continue to distribute meal packs during regular food distribution at the food bank Mondays 5-6 pm; Wednesdays 5:30-6:30 pm; and Fridays 12-1 pm.
