Arlington Explorer Passport

  • Graphic from Passport front cover
    The Arlington Central School District, PTAs and the PTSA Council are excited to present the Arlington Explorer Passport program.

    The goal of the Arlington Explorer Passport program is to increase awareness and participation by our elementary families in the many wonderful arts, music, science, sporting and charity events happening right in our own community – often at Arlington High School.  

    How It Works:

    Each month, you will receive a list of “Passport Events” for the next month via SchoolMessenger. Passport Events will be listed on the District and school websites. Whenever students attend a Passport Event, they will receive one stamp in their passport. Look for the table with the Arlington Explorer Passport sign. For every three stamps, students will receive a prize.

    If students forget to bring the passport to a Passport Event, they can still get a stamp to tape into the passport.

    Students will not receive a stamp for attending events at their own elementary school. Passports will only be stamped at Passport Events.

    If students lose their passport, they may receive/print a new one. However, students will not receive any credit for stamps that they received on the lost passport. 

    Print a new passport insert

    Remember to bring your passport to the designated table to get stamped at passport events. If you forget you can get a pre-stamped square to take or glue into your passport. Please check the Arlington website for the most updated event information in the event of any last minute changes or cancellations
