Si View Pool operations have been modified and are in compliance with Public Health of Seattle and King County and Washington State Department of Health. We follow best practices developed by the CDC for aquatic center operations and continue to adapt our operations as guidelines change. Si View Pool staff has been trained for new procedures for water and land-based emergencies.
We are currently instructing students in a private lesson setting, meeting each student at their skill level. Until the social distancing requirement is removed, we will be unable to offer traditional group lessons. Phase 3 still requires us to space out students not from the same household by 6 feet. When we are able to resume group swim lessons and seasonal scheduling, we will offer lessons by age and skill level.
