General Information

Club RA is a before and after-school program for K-6 students in need of supervision outside of the normal school day. Students are supervised by staff of the Renaissance Academy. They will be provided time and space to complete homework or use, read, and play with tabletop materials made available to them until the school day begins or a parent or guardian arrives to pick them up. Students may also have the opportunity to use the playground as the weather allows.

 

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.

What Should Your Child Bring?

  1. Your child may bring a snack if they choose. They will be asked to wash their hands before and after snack.
  2. Your child should have homework to work on while they wait for pick up.

Room Location

Club RA is held in the LGI in the Lower School. Your child will enter the building at door L-3, which is the door in the Lower School nearest the car loop on Fairview Street. The door has ramp access instead of stairs. Press the silver call button, and tell Club RA staff who you are and why you are there, and they will either unlock the door for you or bring your child to you. If entering the building, make your first right, then make your first left to find the LGI.

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