Water Safety Classes (2nd-4th Grade)
- The class consists of approximately 30-45 minutes of on land interactive learning about water/pool safety rules; 5 W’s of wearing a life jacket; how to recognize an emergency; how to call for help; how to save someone from drowning without going into the water; the dangers of water and the weather (sun and lightning); and more. Then all children will spend 45-60 minutes in the water with an instructor putting into practice some of these new skills, plus learning some basic swim techniques.
