Dear Swim Lesson Parents,
Summer greetings to you from the Northshore Lagoon Pool! We hope that you are well during this very trying time. As most of you are aware, we are in Phase 2 and have opened the pool in a limited capacity from 9am-9pm daily by appointment only. We are allowed only 24 swimmers in the pool at a time, so we have postponed all swim lessons until Phase 3. We thought Phase 3 might start on July 10 th but with the last few days of news, think that phase 2 may take longer than 3 weeks.
We are a Safety First Pool and the safety of our staff and swimmers is of utmost importance to us.
As of yesterday, we received newly updated guidance from the governor’s office about swim lessons during COVID. To summarize, we may need to make adjustments to our Preschool 1, 2 and Youth 1, 2 classes. The reason for the possible adjustment to the beginner level classes is due to the 6 foot distancing. Our other classes: Preschool 3, 4 and Youth 3, 4 and Stroke Refinement, Parent & Tot and Aqua Fitness will be taught as usual since they can be taught with social distancing.
We appreciate your patience during this uncertain time of lesson postponement and will do our best to keep you apprised as we learn more about Phase 3. For those of you who are uncomfortable with lessons during COVID or cannot adjust your schedule to having your pre-paid April and May lessons in July and August, we are happy to provide a refund.
If you do want a refund, please call the pool between 9am-9pm with the credit card information used when you purchased the lessons. We’ll be happy to process your refund. The quickest way to process a refund is for you to call the pool. If you email us, we’ll still need to call you for credit card information so please include your phone number in your email, as well as the name of your child and which class they were schedduled for. It is never recommended to send cc information via email.
