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.
