Our staff members are trained and certified American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors (WSI) and American Red Cross Lifeguards (LG).
AQUATIC GENERAL POLICIES What To Bring
Participants must furnish their own suits, locks, and towels. Patrons are allowed to bring towels & bags on the deck. The Department of Parks & Recreation and School Districts are not responsible for any lost or damaged articles. Showers must be taken before swimming. NO FOOD OR DRINKS are permitted. Contents of locker and lock must be removed after each class. Locker room attendants are NOT on duty... However, locker room checks will be made periodically by pool staff. Youth who are 5 years of age or older must use the gender appropriate locker room. Prior to the start of the class and once dismissed from the pool, participants are not supervised by the swim staff. Please plan accordingly.
Pool Temperature & Maintenance Water and air temperature are regulated by the High School maintenance department, not the Department of Parks & Recreation. Due to limited capabilities of swimming pool equipment, the maintenance department is making every attempt to maintain a water temperature of 80°. This may be cold for some swimmers.
