Dear Goodsports Parent:

It is with deep regret and disappointment that I inform you District 65
has decided not to lease space to any private camps this summer.

I was informed of this yesterday (which is very late notice) by an
administrative staff member. This reversed their stated intent on April
30 to honor their committments to all camps. He indicated this was
a staff decision and not a School Board decision. When I asked why,
his response was the schools needed a deep cleaning before children 
return in the fall.

Additionally, when I informed him of a notice I received that the
City of Evanston Recreation Department is beginning their camps on 
July 6 (we share Lincolnwood School with Eco Quest), he responded
they were making an exception for the Recreation Department.

It seems to me that this is a policy decision which should have been
made by our elected School Board representatives with community
input, especially since an exception was made for Recreation 
Department camps.

There is a virtual School Board meeting this Monday, June 6th,
which might have provided an opportunity to reverse the administrative
staff decision. However, due to this late notice and the fact we 
would have to share the facility during a pandemic, in the interest of
child and staff safety we have decided not to contest the decision.

I will begin to process refunds next week, starting with Session I. 
This will take several weeks. July refunds will then follow. 

Please check your email for refund options/instructions. We hope
to see you next summer.
