To keep everyone safe – When thunder is heard, the pool and adjacent concrete walk around the pool shall be cleared.  When lightning is seen, the pool and adjacent concrete walk around the pool shall be cleared.   These rules shall be enforced by the pool manager, life guards, and/or board members and apply when the pool is open for daily swimming, swim team practice, and all swim team events.   The clearing will conclude 30 minutes after the last weather event.
