The lifeguards at
the pool are stationed as an extra security precaution for children and
adults swimming, but parents need to be reminded that it is ultimately
their own responsibility to keep an eye on their children while they are in
the pool. Please follow lifeguard instructions. It has
been observed that children under 12 are being left unattended in the pool
and/or not being monitored while in the pool. Swimmers needing
assistance should be within arm’s reach. An accident can occur very
quickly. The lifeguards have an overwhelming duty of watching children
playing and swimming all over the pool, so please for the safety of your
children as well as other children, keep
your eyes on your children at all times.
Not following lifeguard
instructions may result of loss of privileges for hours, the day, or
longer. Thank you for your cooperation.
We want everyone to enjoy their
time at the pool, so please be aware of your surroundings. Be
courteous and share the space.
After eating or snacking, clean up
after yourself. Do not leave trash on the tables or on the pool
deck. Also, allow your food to settle before returning to the pool to
