ARPD Programs follow all Alameda County Health protocols.  All RAP Program details are subject to change (i.e., AUSD calendar changes, Alameda County Health Department guidelines, etc.)

  • Games
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Cooking
  • Sports
  • Outdoor Activities (weather permitting) in a supervised, safe environment
  • Daily Snack
  • RAP meets every school day at dismissal time, including modified or early dismissal school days and ends at 5:30 pm.  THERE IS NO RAP CARE ON SCHOOL HOLIDAYS OR NON-SCHOOL DAYS.  AUSD provides us with the early and modified day schedule before the year beings and we plan accordingly.

Meet your RAP Leaders at the pre-designated pick-up areas at the school - see 2021-2022 RAP Parent Handbook(PDF, 2MB) for more detailed locations.  All participants will walk back to the park as a group with the RAP Leaders.

Once RAP Staff leaves school grounds for their park site, they cannot return to school for late kids (i.e. field trips, enrichment, etc.)  Any kids with bikes, scooters, skateboards or roller blades MUST walk or carry them and obey all traffic laws on the way to the park.  Be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.

  • For Kindergarten enrolled at Maya Lin & Paden Schools:
    • You must contact ARPD before 11:00 am if your child will not attend RAP for any reason. 
  • For 1st to 5th Grades:
    •  You must contact ARPD before 12:00 pm if your child will not attend RAP for any reason.

  • Please send an email to arpd@alamedaca.gov OR call (510) 747-7529 ext. 1
  • Be sure to leave your child's name, absence date and school site
  • NO REFUNDS, CREDITS OR MAKE-UPS ARE ALLOWED FOR ANY DAYS YOU MISS

RAP fees DO NOT cover cost or enrollment for any non-school vacation camps.  (Camp enrollments require separate forms and fees).

All participants must be picked up by 5:30 p.m.  Starting at 5:31 p.m., a late fee of $1 per minute will be charged for late pick-ups, payable that day.  If you are more than 30 minutes late, we will contact the Alameda Police Department to pick up your child and take him/her to the Police Station.  If late pick ups are a consistent problem, we will take further appropriate action.

 

All fees must be paid a minimum of 48 business hours in advance before your child is picked up for RAP.  You must pay by the published due dates.

2021-2022 FEE SCHEDULE:


ATTENTION ALL 3 DAY PARTICIPANTS:

  • DAY CHANGES:  You must specify the days of the week your child will attend.  These days will remain the same for the full session unless you pay the $15 administrative fee to change them.
  • EXTRA DAYS:  You CANNOT swap any unused regular day(s) for any extra day(s).  You may add an one-time additional pick up day (outside of your regular day); there is a $20 per day charge which must be paid in full 48 business hours in advance of the date needed.

 

 

Financial assistance is available for Alameda residents.  To qualify, you will need to complete a Fee Assistance Request Form and return it with the required documents to ARPD Staff.  To request a form, just email arpd@alamedaca.gov.
