Yes. The school asks that foods that contain peanuts, nuts or their respective families of products not be brought onto school premises. This policy applies to all classes, even those without anaphylactic children. All school events follow a nut-aware policy, with policies kept up-to-date with the T.D.S.B. and other CAIS-accredited schools.
All lunches must be dairy or parve. Any food brought to school must bear a Hechsher such as COR or OU or other registered Kosher labels. When meat is served in the hot lunch program, all students are able to bring a lunch with kosher meat to school that day. The following symbols on the school calendar indicate when students can bring meat to school. We ask that parents be mindful of the days when meat lunches are allowed and only send kosher meat products.
Please call the administration office. Early years class lists are made available each spring for those interested in carpooling. In addition, the school has a carpool book where new families may register.
Yes, there is an after school program offered in which students are supervised until 6:00 p.m. for an additional cost. There are also after school extra-curricular programs (sports, plays, etc.) offered in partnership with the Parents’ Association. For more information you can read on our website at: https://www.rhacademy.ca/school-life/academy-of-excellence. We also offer before and after care.
Tuition fees increase annually to cover changes in operating expenses. Increasing tuition further would make the cost of sending a child to RHA increasingly difficult to many of our parents. The cost of tuition at RHA remains in line with other Jewish Day Schools.
UJA provides financial support through The Centre for Jewish Education for subsidies. The funds have been capped over the last number of years and must be distributed over the growing number of students in the day school system in Toronto.
