Club RA is a before and after school program for Lower School students in need of supervision outside the normal school day. Students are supervised by staff of the Renaissance Academy. Students will be provided time and space to complete homework, read, and / or take advantage of a number of resources available to them for table top educational and recreational activities until the school day begins or a parent or guardian arrives to pick them up.

Club RA begins the first full day of school and runs every full day of school. Before Care is available on early dismissal days. After Care is not available on early dismissal days (weather related, scheduled, or otherwise).

How to Sign Up

To have your child participate in Club RA please sign and return this document to your child’s homeroom teacher (this needs to be done only one time). Then send an email to the following people and addresses to notify everyone of the change in procedure.

Please include the days you anticipate using Club RA Before Care and / Club RA After Care (i.e., today only, all this week Before Care, every Monday Before and After Care, etc.). Please note, due to teaching schedules, emails received after 1:30 may not be read until after dismissal.

Student Pick Up**

Club RA is held in LGI in the Lower School. Please park in the car rider loop when dropping off or picking up your child and walk over to door L-3. L-3 is the door in the Lower School nearest the car loop while on Fairview Street. The door has ramp access instead of stairs. Press the silver call button. Tell Club RA staff who you are and why you are there and they will unlock the door for you. Upon entering the building make your first right, then make your first left.

All students must be signed out of Club RA After Care through our visitor management system which requires the parent’s / guardian’s license. Individuals picking up students will also need documented authorization which is provided by the parent / guardian on the Emergency Contact Form when the student was enrolled at Renaissance Academy. Attempted pick ups by relatives or family friends not listed in Emergency Contacts will necessitate phone verification which will delay the sign out process.

**Multiple late pick-ups will make your child ineligible to participate in Club RA.

Fee Schedule

Fees are posted to your child’s account in your Parent Portal on Skyward. Fees are due 15 days after they are posted. Payments can be made with a credit or debit card via the Parent Portal. Checks or cash payments may be sent in and directed to Carol Schaeffer, our Business Manager.
