More pool Information:

* Swim lessons are not available this summer, at least the month of June, to ensure the safety of our lifeguards & maintain distance between them and pool guests unless they are required to assist in an emergency with proper protective devices.  We’re adjusting plans as we get guidance from the state/cdc/city. 

* We’ve scheduled in cleaning times between each group, will have an extra staff member whose sole purpose will be making sure restrictions are followed/cleaning, are limiting the number of people admitted and following all of the cdc recommendations.

*Because we are currently limited to 50 person gatherings, we will not be able to issue family passes.  We wouldn’t be able to guarantee admittance just because you have a pass.  Anyone coming on the pool deck must pay because they will be counted as part of our pool limit.  *reminder-all swimmers under 11 MUST have an adult with them.
