Knox High School Principal Dr. Elizabeth Ratliff told the school board this week that the lifeguarding classes conducted at the high school pool went well.
Twenty-five residents have been certified as lifeguards in the classes that were offered earlier this month. Amy Nimetz said the five day classes that were held June 3–7 and June 10–14 were a success and they may be offered again.
Ratliff also reminded the school board that open swim is available at the high school every Tuesday this summer from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. CT. The cost is $5 per person and a $20 swim card is available which is good for five swims.
Several families have come in to cool off at the pool and community groups are encouraged to take advantage of this time as well. If your child is in the 6th grade or younger, that child must be accompanied by an adult or sibling over the age of 16.
