Please take time to review these important water safety tips for a fun, healthy, and safe summer. Water Safety Tips for Parents: • Discuss water safety and rules with your children before every visit to the pool or beach • Ensure your children have strong swimming skills by enrolling them in swimming classes • If you bring a child’s friend to the pool or beach, assess their swimming ability yourself, don’t just rely on what their parents tell you • Don’t give shoulder rides, you may not be able to tell if your child’s head is above water • Don’t let your children play breath holding games • Keep toys that sink to the bottom of the pool or lake at home • Watch your children at all times around any body of water • Don’t get distracted by books or electronics, you are there to have fun, so unplug! • Remember to stay within an arm’s reach of your child at all times, even if they’re wearing a life jacket • Only use Coast Guard approved life jackets that are properly fitted–Hidden Creek AquaPark has Coast Guard approved life jackets for children (x-small-medium) that are free to use while at the pool Share These Water Safety Tips With Your Children: 50 Park District of Highland Park • 847.831.3810 • pdhp.org • Have an adult with you whenever you go swimming • Make sure a lifeguard is watching the pool or lake and the adult you are with gives you permission before you go into the water • Don’t rough house or play breath holding games; it’s dangerous • If you see someone in trouble yell “HELP!” over and over again – don’t try to help someone in trouble yourself, or you could be pulled under • If you are tired, remember to take a break
