ISR Lessons + Safety
UPDATED AUGUST 2022
**All Lower Bucks ISR Instructors are fully vaccinated and boosted as of December 2021. **
ISR instructors have long been held to stringent pre-defined safety protocols as a condition of our certification. This has made the transition into the current environment a seamless one!
These protocols include a 1:1 ratio, no physical contact between instructor and parent, mandatory 3 towel rule (child is placed or sits on 2 towels on the pool deck to protect from germs), and strict illness guidelines for keeping children home from lessons and enabling their safe return once they are feeling better.
The George School Indoor Pool where Jan-June lessons with Miss Jenna will be held will require a mask for parents and children to enter the building until further notice. Masks must be worn in and around the pool facility and locker rooms, however we ask you to pull yours down to discuss your child's BUDS sheet with us prior to your child's lesson (from a safe distance of course!) so that we can hear you. We will need to do the same!
Below are additional policies and procedures as it relates to COVID-19. We apologize for any inconvenience the implementation of these policies causes your family, but we assure you the changes are in the best interest of safety for all.
★ Please follow current CDC guidelines for vaccinated adults if you are vaccinated, and unvaccinated if you are not. Please also follow any current CDC guidelines for travel and return after travel. Your adherence to these guidelines ensures your instructor can keep teaching!
★ If you or anyone in your home has experienced: fever, cough, shortness of breath, or flu-like symptoms in the last 14 days, kindly stay home and alert your instructor right away.
★ If you have been in contact with someone that has/had COVID-19 in the last 14 days, please alert your instructor before coming to your child’s lesson to discuss a new start/resume date.
★ If you must bring sibling(s) they must stay within arm’s reach of you at all times or in a stroller if unable to stay close to you independently.
★ Use provided hand sanitizer at the pool deck for yourself and child(ren) BEFORE placing your child at the hand in/out area,
★ While we are supportive of masking indoors per our facility's policy, please momentarily pull down your mask from a 6ft distance to ask your instructor questions/discuss your child's BUDS sheet prior to lessons. It's difficult for us to hear you and answer your questions correctly with the ambient noise of the pool area indoors, and the information shared on those sheets is important for us know prior to your child's lesson.
★ Please answer the daily BUDS questionnaire fully and completely.
★ Exit the pool area immediately following your child’s lesson for the day. Your instructor will be available for questions later in the day via text or phone.
★ Do not wring out wet swim diapers or clothing on the pool deck
★ No eating or drinking in the pool area
