POLICIES OF ZION PARK DISTRICT SWIM LESSON PROGRAMS :
1. Register your child early to reserve a spot in class. We strive to keep a low student ratio in our classes and when you register early, this enables us to plan according, and in turn serve you better.
2. Before test day, talk with your child’s swimming instructor and find out the progress your child has made for the next level.
3. Our swimming instructors enjoy teaching children, but all of us have different teaching styles. Please keep this in mind when observing lessons. We ask that if parents have questions or concerns, please address them after class. Parents will be required to observe class from the designated area in the aquatics area.
4. If your child misses a class due to illness, vacation, etc., you will not receive a make-up lesson.
5. Swim lessons have a class enrollment minimum and this may require us to adjust the schedule. We will notify parents if this is necessary.
