Dear Doctor Lane,

This attached swim pool permit request is important to me. I would like your help in getting it approved. There should be no cost / charges from PPS.

In 2010, Summer Dreamers was at Peabody, and we used the pool in the mornings for a training group. The same case applies in 2013. We want to have practices on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8 am to 11:30 at PCA / Greenway. Custodians are on duty.

If cleaning needs to occur, do that on Mondays, Wednesdays or Saturdays.

We wish to start on July 1, 2013.

We wish to end at the end of August.

I will also send this request to Athletics, the Obama Athletic Director, the Obama Principal, the PCA Principal and the Gifted Office.

Myself and our people have all the necessary paperwork, clearances, and certifications. Plus, we have an extra measure of insurance as well so there is no reason to deny this vital request. I had written to you about this in past weeks and have heard nothing. I have also made the request to our new AD at Obama Academy as well.

It would be way better to practice at Obama Academy, but, there are some building things happening there and permits are not available to us there this summer, so I understand. Being that we are already using the pool in the afternoons at PCA, it makes sense to go there. Plus, Obama is a city-wide magnet so we have and continue to attract west end kids as well.

Thanks for your reply.
