Precautions and waiver
ATTENDING SWIM LESSONS AMID CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS:
We would like to update you on our provision and how COVID 19 may affect our swimming lessons in future weeks. The health and well-being of the students in our programs & families and our employees is our highest priority, and as such, we are extra vigilant in our efforts to maintain a high standard of cleanliness at the pool.
Our goal is to provide the safest environment possible for our staff and swimmers. In order to do this, we have adopted a few new practices:
If your swimmer or anyone in your house is showing signs of illness, DO NOT COME TO SWIM CLASS. If you or your child is showing signs of illness, our staff may ask you a few questions and/ or check you for fever to confirm that you are well.
Amy’s Aquatics employees will have their temperatures taken and recorded at the beginning of their shift. Any team members with a temperature higher than 99.4 will be sent home immediately and not permitted back at the facility until fever free for a minimum 72 hours without fever reducer.
In compliance with guidelines and recommendations of the CDC and government officials, we will be limiting the number of people at the pool. This will affect Show Off Day. Due to the governor’s guidelines, we have chosen to discontinue Show Off Day at this time. We are allowed to teach up to four kids per class in an outdoor setting. In planning Show Off Day, we have come to realize there is no safe way to social distance and keep attendees safe while on our premises.
We will be having a shortened show off day to limit the amount of parents in the yard at one time. The first 15 minutes of the last day of class will be for Mrs. Amy;s kids and the second 15 minutes will be for Miss Bailey's class.
We will have a limited amount of water toys available at the end of each lesson. These toys will be dumped in a disinfecting solution after each class. A clean set of toys will be used for each class.
We will disinfect all communal areas after each session (morning/afternoon). Please bring your towel with you to pick up your child. We are trying to limit cross contamination so we would prefer you not bring your towel with you to class. Simply bring it with you when you come to pick up your child.
Restrooms: Since this is our home, we are going to discontinue the use of our bathrooms. Please make sure your child has gone potty before you arrive.
We will be providing hand sanitizer at both gates for your use. Please make sure your child has sanitized their hands before entering the back yard.
Just Keep Swimming?
What we are learning is that drinking water and pool water, when properly treated with chlorine, is considered to be safe, as "adherence to the appropriate guidelines will control risk from waterborne COVID-19 virus".
Our pool water is treated with chlorine, in accordance with the state of Texas's Health Code. You will notice less equipment used during classes in an effort to minimize cross contamination. All equipment is disinfected throughout the day and soaked overnight.
Outside of the pool, we are using the appropriate cleaning agents that are proven to kill off any dangerous viruses. We will continue to do what is necessary to maintain a clean and safe environment for our students and their families.
