ActivKids Remote Learning Childcare
School districts begin hybrid learning this month. For the days your child is remote learning and you need to work – we have you covered! The Carol Stream Park District is offering two registration options for Grades K-8. Sign up for any combination of days and take advantage of our biweekly payment plan.
Partial Day Hybrid Learning
Register for morning or afternoon childcare based on your in-person learning schedule. CCSD93 is providing transportation to and from the Simkus Recreation Center for hybrid students.
Full Day Remote Learning
Take advantage of our full school day option, from 8 am to 4 pm. CCSD93 students are fully remote on Mondays and can pair this option with hybrid childcare on Tuesdays-Fridays.
Staff oversee a safe learning environment where face coverings and social distancing are required. Kids enjoy activity breaks during down time. All school districts are welcome. Details are subject to change.
For flexibility, After Care can be added to your child’s schedule for an additional fee.

Happy Holidays Carol Stream Residents!

This Holiday Season will be thought-provoking, to say the least. In the midst of the pandemic, we need to remember that the season is about family, love, caring, sharing and giving. Give to those in need. There are many families that need help at this time. Share love and positivity with others. Be nice. Be patient. Spend time with your family. We can still share the joys of the holiday season with some thought, while we social distance to keep ourselves and others well.
The Carol Stream Park District is here for you, always! We are confident in the future and are working creatively to bring activities, sports and recreation to the community. During current mitigations, we can offer virtual, outdoors and one-on-one programs, in addition to in-person special events (when allowed). Keep yourself and the kids busy – we are here for you!
As is the Carol Stream way, a community of friendships and partnerships, I thank you strongly for your support this bizarre year. I thank you for your continued support this holiday season and into the New Year. Keep the faith that 2021 will be a great year. I wish you and your families well! Have a beautiful holiday!
Sincerely, Jim Reuter, Executive Director

UPDATE about Park District Activities, Programs & Facilities in cooperation with State Mitigation Requirements

Dear Residents,

The State of Illinois is tightening down mitigation requirements to prevent the rapidly increasing spread of COVID-19. In order to safeguard the residents and customers of the Carol Stream Park District, we are closely following the guidance newly released by the Illinois Department of Health (IDPH). Beginning November 20, 2020, at 12:01am, the mitigation requirements to combat this surge of COVID-19 affects the Park District as follows:

Fountain View Fitness Center

Meetings, Room Rentals, Special Events

Organized group recreational activities (sports, indoor sports and activity facilities, etc.)

Indoor recreation

We are working diligently to keep our patrons active and both physical and mentally engaged. At this time we are figuring out ways to bring activities and programs to you yet follow the guidelines imposed upon us.  Many of these activities will be virtual. Some may be “drive-by” or outdoors when weather cooperates, while others may be activity “boxes” you may pick up and take home.  All current participants in programs will be contacted by phone or by email with the status of their program moving forward.

Our staff is full of ideas and we look forward to bringing them to you to get us through the holidays and this most recent mitigation measure. Keep looking to us. Open your emails and check social media feeds. We’ll keep you informed by email, social media and our website of any changes to our plans and facility closures. If you have concerns we can address, please feel free to call 630-784-6100 (M-F  9am-5pm) or email info@csparks.org.

The Carol Stream Park District thanks you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. We ask that you take precautions, stay safe, and exercise kindness to others. We will forge through this. Difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations.

Respectfully,
Jim Reuter
Executive Director

A Plea for Help from Your Parks Director

In a year ravaged by a global pandemic, civil unrest, an economic crisis and many families with loved ones losing jobs, your community is facing yet another challenge — a local challenge we must meet head on together, as a community. This local challenge is depleting budget dollars meant for park and playground improvements, repairs, and sustaining the overall quality of life you are accustomed to in the great town of Carol Stream. This challenge is not a new challenge by any means; however, I can’t simply sit by and watch a park system and a community be deliberately destroyed by random acts of vandalism without making a plea to each and every one of you for help.

Public property within the Carol Stream Park District’s park system has been continuously vandalized this summer, totaling over $20,000 in damages.  From Armstrong Park to Hampe Park to Community Park, random acts of vandalism have occurred almost daily, forcing your Park District to close washroom facilities, shifting budgeted funds to repair these items. In turn, this takes away funds from items such as new swings or new playground surfacing, not to mention taking countless staff hours away from our routine daily maintenance.  Simply put – when we are repairing vandalized parks, we can’t focus on delivering the great outdoor spaces you deserve!

Your Park District is staffed by true professionals who truly care and are passionate about what they do on a daily basis. These professionals take pride in delivering well-maintained, safe open spaces and recreation programs each and every day. These countless acts of vandalism have challenged our ability to deliver those positive recreational experiences as we are simply repairing vandalized parks and playgrounds . . . not focusing on progress!

Today I write to you on behalf of myself, the Park District Board of Commissioners and Park District staff, earnestly asking YOU to assist us with this local emergency. If you see anyone vandalizing YOUR public property, call the Carol Stream Police Department at 911 and/or the Carol Stream Park District immediately.

I am a proud man who dislikes asking for help but today is the day. The Park District and the community need you more than ever!  Please come together, rally and unite to help save your parks, playgrounds and open space from vandals who are causing major destruction right under our noses. The time is now to help take back this community. When you see something, you need to say something.

If you have any information about vandalism in your parks, please email me at shaneh@csparks.org

Yours In Parks,
Shane Hamilton
Director – Parks & Facilities
