Sick Policy

Whether it's a case of the sniffles, or something more serious, it can be difficult to make the right call on sending your child to their much-anticipated swim lesson. Swimming is the most fun when everyone is healthy, and that means our students and instructors. If the Instructor comes in contact with a sick child and becomes ill, that means your child, and all other children will have to miss out on their swim lessons, please be considerate.  It’s important to know as a parent when you can, and when you can't, bring your sick child to swimming lessons.

Bring your child to swim lessons if:
    They are showing signs of minimal seasonal allergies. Sniffles and a sore throat are a common malady for your school-aged swimmer, but they don't impact their ability to perform during swimming lessons. As long as they aren't exhibiting a fever, your child is probably safe to participate in swimming lessons.
CONTACT US if you are not sure, we will be happy to advise you.

 Still, try to minimize their physical interactions with other kids and pool toys.

Leave your swimmer at home if:

- Runny Nose (clear to any color of the rainbow)
- Goopy Eyes (pink eye)
- Productive Cough
- Fever
- Diarrhea
- Cold or Flu
- Stomach Virus/Bug
* * Must Be Fever Free for 24hrs!
* * Must Be Diarrhea Free for 24hrs!
* * Even Seasonal Allergy Symptoms can infect the pool, where others can get sick.

    - They exhibit signs of pinkeye. Contagious eye infections, like pink eye, are a definite reason to stay home. Pink eye is a contagious infection and can make the environment unsafe for other swimmers. The best way to help sick children is to prevent the spread of these infections.

    - They have diarrhea or other GI problems. Not only can frequent bathroom trips disrupt the lesson, but diarrhea can easily spread a whole host of illnesses. According to the CDC, “infectious diarrhea can contain anywhere from hundreds of millions to one billion germs per bowel movement.” The smallest amount of fecal matter can make other children very sick.

What To Do If I Miss A Class?

We understand that consistent attendance is better for everyone and that illness, life events, and other unexpected events occur. Aqua April’s makeup policy takes this into account and only ask that others honor the spirit of this privilege and use it only for illness and serious conflicts. Overuse of rescheduling negatively affects classes and your child's progression. If you decide to keep your child home, there are plenty of swimming skills you can work on at home.

Safety is the number one priority in swimming lessons, especially with children. Make sure to go over this list with your budding swimmer and explain the importance and being clean and healthy before getting in the water with other children.
