St. Joseph’s Great After School Program
GRASP, St. Joseph’s after school program, offers assistance with
homework, time for play, exercise, and snacks for students in grades
K-6th from dismissal time until 5:15 P.M. The program is offered each
day, including early dismissal days.
(There is no GRASP on school holidays, the half day before Thanksgiving
and Christmas, during Christmas vacation, or during school vacations).
Payment is due on the 1st of each month. There is an annual,
non-refundable registration fee.
Payment for the GRASP is figured on a monthly basis and not on a per
diem or weekly basis. Students are required to attend on the day for
which they are registered. Switching days within the week is not
permitted. There is no reimbursement made if a student does not attend
the assigned day either because of absence or a school holiday.
In an emergency situation your child will be able to attend GRASP on a
day for which he or she has not registered. If an emergency occurs you
must notify the administration and classroom teacher in writing. A
$25.00 fee will be charged. This fee must be sent to the office on the
day the child attends.
At the end of the day, the person picking up a child must sign him/her
out. Any person not known to the school must have prior approval and
proper identification or the child will not be released. Please make
sure that your child is picked up on time. A fee of $25.00 will be
required for anyone who is picked up later than 5:15 P.M. more than
twice in a school year.
