Our focus at RTA is on promoting a healthy lifestyle, which includes physical fitness and nutrition. Junk food is strongly discouraged and in some cases not allowed on campus: slurpees, iced-coffee, energy drinks, large quantities of candy, etc. We appreciate parents supporting us in ensuring students have healthy snacks and lunches at school.
As a number of our students have severe allergies to nuts, including peanuts, we are an Allergy Aware school. We ask for your support in protecting students with allergies by not sending foods containing tree nuts or peanuts to school. For more information about this and other health concerns see our Illness & Medical page.
