Fall Swimming Lessons Update – August 24, 2020

While we are now into Phase 3, access to many facilities continues to be limited at this time.  We are awaiting information and confirmation of access to facilities in order to determine when swimming lessons may safely resume.  Please continue to watch for updates on our website and social media.

Again, thank you for your understanding and support of measures to protect health and well-being in our communities.

Sincerely,
Kellie Coelho
Manager of Health & Wellness
