Dear Girls Inc. and AIK parents:

Thank you for your patience at this time as we are all awaiting news from the state and school district about how Covid-19 will impact the remainder of the school year and possibly summer. At this time, we are working to refund AIK families for the remaining two weeks of March that you have already pre-paid, as well as refunding spring break Meyers Camp fees. Checks will be mailed the week of March 30 and should be received soon after. Most checks should be received within a week but we appreciate your understanding if it is slightly longer.

We are not taking AIK payments for April or May, or Girls Inc. elementary payments for spring quarter at this time. We will not currently hold AIK 2020-21 registration beginning on Monday, April 13 as we had scheduled. Once we know more about how the school year and summer will proceed, we will share with you new registration dates and procedures. At this time, we are unsure if our elementary summer camps or teen Eureka! program will be impacted, so please check back for updates.

We are working offsite with very limited staff at this time, so please contact me with any questions at, and I will do my best to respond to you in a timely manner.

Christine Chilcott
CEO, Girls Inc. of the Island City
