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.

*Information subject to change based on updated information and recommendations from local, state, and federal authorities. 

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.
  • You will notice social distancing circles throughout the school.
  • The facility will be marked for a one-way traffic pattern entering and leaving the school.
  • We will only be allowing students who are taking lessons into the facility.  Tours will be temporarily discontinued.
  • Upon completion of the lesson, parents will be called one by one to meet their child in the shower hallway and then walk (one way) back out to the front of the building. 

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

  • Our team and customers (including children old enough to do so) will be required to wear a mask (outside of the pool). The CDC recommends children over the age of 2 wear a mask in public.
  • Great resource for children and masks: American Academy of Pediatrics
  • Our instructors will be wearing face coverings in the pool.
  • 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.

Pool Safety:

  • Our pools are the best around!  Although public pools require turnover every 8 hours, ours do a complete turnover every hour and also have both chlorine and UV sanitation systems.
  • Our pool chemistry is checked multiple times a day.
  • CDC Information regarding pools.

Health Check Protocol

  • Staff and customers will need to verbally agree to a short Covid-19 symptoms screening before entering the swim school.  The questions will be posted at the entrance of the building.
  • All staff will have their temperature checked at the beginning of each shift.
  • All staff and customers are asked to stay home if they are experiencing any signs of illness.

Cleaning Procedures:

  • Increased cleaning and disinfecting throughout the day.  (Including: high touch surfaces, chairs, door handles and bathrooms)
  • Deeper cleaning will occur at the end of every morning and afternoon shift.

Class sizes and Levels:

  • Semiprivate classes (ages 3 and up): In our first phase of reopening: Student teacher ratio will be 1:1 unless two members of the same household swim together then 2:1.  In the future, when guidelines allow, we will open semiprivate classes up to two unrelated children. 
  • Sibling semi-privates for ages 3 and older: If you would like to enroll both children in the same class, please enroll only one student in a semi-private course in the customer portal. You will then email the school at info@demontswim.com to let us know you want to enroll your second swimmer in the same class and we will take care of that enrollment and send you an email confirmation. Payment will be processed with your card on file for the sibling within one week. 
  • Little Froggy Semiprivate classes (6 months to 35 months): Student/parent to teacher ratio will be 2:1.
  • Returning students will be placed in the level they last attended.
  • New families will receive a phone call to determine a starting level.  Students will then be formally evaluated on their first day.

Changing areas and restrooms:

  • Changing rooms are temporarily closed.
  • Please plan on arriving and leaving in a swimsuit as dressing rooms and showers will be closed.  (Little Froggy parents will be allowed to change their child on the pool deck).
  • We will have two restrooms open: the one on the pool deck and the one off of our lobby.

Loaner items:

  • We will not be offering loaner towels at this time.
  • We will not be offering loaner goggles at this time.
