What is Club RA?

Club RA is an after school program that provides supervision for children who cannot be picked up by 4 P.M.. This program is for students in Kindergarten through 6th grade. Your child is welcome to attend Club RA where he/she will be supervised by RA staff. This after school time will be used to complete homework, read quietly or participate in some other educational activity while waiting for parents or guardians to arrive.

Student Pick Up

Club RA will be held in the Lower School in Room 38. When picking up your child please park in the car rider loop and walk to the L-2 door of the lower school building located on the corner of Grant and Fairview St. Ring the doorbell to indicating you are at the door, then a teacher will let you in. You will not be allowed to pick up your child at this door before 4:00 PM. Continuing this year for everyone’s safety all students will be signed out through the Raptor system. Parents, please ensure that all individuals that pick up your child/children are authorized to pick up your child either through Infinite Campus or Raptor.

All students must be picked up by 6:00. If there is an emergency and your child(ren) cannot be picked up by 6:00 then a $5.00 late fee (per child) will be charged for every 15 minutes late. If this is abused, a letter will be going home informing you that your child will not be allowed to attend Club RA.

Behavior

At Club RA, students will be following the same rules and procedures of our school. Attending Club RA is a privilege and not a right. If your child’s behavior is not appropriate a discipline referral will go home. If your child receives 3 discipline referrals during the school year they will no longer be allowed to attend Club RA.
