*In the 2015-16 MOU adopted by the City Council on Tuesday, June 16, 2015, both the City and the RBUSD have agreed to continue with the Afterschool Playground operations and will continue providing the child check-in and parent check-out procedure at all eight elementary sites. In order to address student safety and liability concerns, parents will no longer be allowed to sign a RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND WAIVER OF ALL CLAIMS form authorizing their children to sign themselves out on a regular or occasional basis.  A parent or authorized person (16 years of age or older) will be required to checkout their students each day. 

Recognizing that the 5:30 p.m. pick-up deadline may be problematic for some families who regularly used the Waiver process in 2014-15, we are offering an Extended Day Option from 5:30-6:00 p.m. for an additional fee of $30 per child per 20-day session. The surcharge fee is a session by session fee, meaning you can opt in or out of the Extended Day program for each session. There are nine 20-day sessions per school year. This will allow flexibility for parents who may only need it 1 month as opposed to 3 months or the entire school year.  The standard policy regarding late pick-up etc. would be applied beginning at 6:00 p.m.
