2019-2020 RAH Information
Each month, all RAH participants receive a newsletter and activities calendar. We will highlight RAH happenings, field trips, parent reminders on half days and full days and other park district special events.
When your child's school has an 11:30 dismissal we will pick your child up from their school. Please make sure you send your child with a lunch and snack to get through the day. An early dismissal session is 11:30am - 6:00pm.
Children should bring a snack everyday to refresh after school. We provide vending machines if you wish to send your child with money.
When you child's school is off or on break you can sign your child up for an exciting fun day at RAH. The children will participate in indoor and outdoor activities, crafts or may even have a field trip scheduled. Your child will need a lunch and 2 snacks. Full Day RAH is available from 6:30am - 6:00pm.
Throughout the school year the RAH program utilizes various park district facilities during each day. Facilities include Freedom Activity Center, Frontier Fieldhouse, Ball Fore, Lily Pad; as well various park district playgrounds. The RAH participants may visit the Chicago Ridge Library on some occasions. All information will be listed on our monthly newsletter.
