RASA is Moving!!!

Dear RASA Families,

The RASA Board of Directors and I are happy to announce that we will be moving to the Congregational Church (974 Skyline Drive SW, Rochester, MN 55902) for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year. This new space provides an upgrade in size and aesthetics for both the indoor and outdoor spaces. It meets our current needs, allows room for growth, and provides physical surroundings on par with the high quality of our academics. Although we’ve grown quite fond of the downtown location, we are excited about this change and hope you are too.

For the first term, we will be allowing families to drop off students as early as 7:15 for no additional charge. Hopefully, this will relieve some of the anxiety that comes with the move to the new location. At the end of Term 1, we plan to reevaluate our morning drop-off times and finalize a plan moving forward. As always, RASA will provide care before 7:15 as needed for a small charge. As we get to know our new facility better, we anticipate some changes to routines and policies may be necessary. We will do our best to meet the needs of all our children, families, and staff.

We thank you for your patience and support during this time of change. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have. We are excited about this new opportunity and can’t wait to get the school year started.
