UPDATED March 1, 2017

Community Swim Program cancelled until Sept. 2017

HS pool closed for repairs

Due to the malfunction of a main drainage pipe which had the potential to create an unsafe structure, the high school pool has been closed and drained in anticipation of repairs. Because of the complexity of the repairs, it is estimated the pool will be closed until late winter or spring. This means the community swim program for the remainder of this year is cancelled and the boys swim team has been relocated for the remainder of its season. [READ MORE]
