Health and Safety Protocols

At all times, the DeMont Family Swim School stands for safety in and out of the water. Our response to the COVID-19 pandemic reflects that we are uncompromising in that responsibility. Though practicing an abundance of caution presents obvious inconveniences, we hope and trust that our students and their families respect our commitment to safety.

Social Distancing

  • Our lobby will be set up and marked to accommodate social distancing.
  • All children are to stay next to their parents at all times when not in the pool.

Who can come to swim lessons:

  • Only one parent may attend lessons with a swimmer.
  • If your children will be swimming one after the other, please keep your waiting child close to you at all times.

Protective Gear

  • Gloves will be provided for our customer service team as needed.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be provided at the entrance and in various locations within the school.

  • Our pool chemistry is checked multiple times a day.
  • CDC Information regarding pools.
