General Information

Club RA is a before and after school program for Lower School students in need of supervision outside of the normal school day. Students are supervised by the staff of the Renaissance Academy. Students will be provided time and space to complete homework or use, read, and play with table top materials they bring in from home until the school day begins or a parent or guardian arrives to pick them up. In appropriate weather, students may also have the opportunity to use the playground.

During Club RA, all school behavior expectations and procedures are in effect including the use of PBIS points and referrals. Students who receive three or more discipline referrals during Club RA in a given school year will not be permitted back to Club RA for that school year.

Attempted pickups by relatives or family friends not listed in Emergency Contacts will necessitate phone verification which will delay the sign-out process.
