Learn TO SWIM ABOUT THE PROGRAM The Glen Ellyn Park District’s Learn to Swim program provides a positive, fun-filled opportunity for children to learn skills that will help reduce the number of water accidents and provide life- long aquatic enjoyment. Children will be moved up to the next level once all of the skills in the previous level have been mastered. Many skills in certain levels are dependent on physical development, strength and coordination. Please remember that each child is unique and develops at his or her own rate, and that progression through these levels varies greatly. Parents are asked to remain off the pool deck and in the concessions area. This will aid the in- structors in keeping your child’s focus, and the deck clear in case of an aquatic emergency. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated. INCLEMENT WEATHER & CLASS CANCELLATIONS In the event of thunder and lightning, lessons will be cancelled. Please call the weather hotline at (630) 984-5075 for updates. Lessons will still be held in cool temperatures and precipitation as long as no lightning is detected. If class is cancelled, makeup class will be held on the FRIDAY of that week, at the originally scheduled time. There are no makeup’s or refunds for otherwise missed classes, or inclement weather, if not officially cancelled by the Park District. No more than two classes will be made up, per session, in the event that more are cancelled.
