Swim Lessons

Welcome to the Third Grade Swim Lesson Program!Swim
 
We are pleased to inform you that the 3rd grade swim vouchers for 2021 will be coming home this spring in May! This program is made possible by Verdant Health Commission in cooperation with the cities of Edmonds, Lynnwood, and Mountlake Terrace.

Each 3rd grade student will receive a sheet that consists of three vouchers good for 3 sets of swim lessons that are redeemable at either the Lynnwood Pool, the Mountlake Terrace Pool, Yost (Edmonds) Pool, and YMCA Dale Turner Pool. The vouchers have the student’s name and specific voucher number printed on them and are in English and Spanish.

If one of your students loses their voucher or you get a new student in your classroom, do not hesitate to contact me, Patricia Schultz, at (425) 431-7147 or schultzp@edmonds.wednet.edu to request a new voucher.

Swim Voucher Information:
  • All 3rd grade students will still receive the swim vouchers via the school district however, the voucher will only be good for lessons in levels 1-4 (water safety/learn to swim); not higher level swim lessons. This is a change as in the past the vouchers could be used for any level of classes.
  • The swim vouchers will be sent to all 3rd grade classroom teachers and the vouchers will be sent home with students in May. Be on the lookout for the swim vouchers in your child's backpack! 
  • In the near future, pool staff will still come out to 3rd grade PE classes to teach the water safety lessons.
  • IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Any school age child who does not know how to swim can also receive a swim voucher for free beginning lessons. This includes all students in grades K-12 and students with special needs. Families will have to contact the Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace or Dale Turner/YMCA pools for details on how to get these beginning swim vouchers. 
  • Important Information for Yost Pool & Dale Turner YMCA - Vouchers can only be redeemed currently for use at our YOST pool this summer only.  Vouchers cannot be redeemed for lessons at the Dale Turner Family Y for the time being
    • Lessons this summer will be more limited than in summers past.  Vouchers can only be redeemed for our Swim Basics lessons at YOST Pool.  Registration will start 6/15 for July and August group lessons
    • Anyone not in 3rd grade can collect their swim vouchers from the Dale Turner Family Y.  Anyone looking to sign up will need to call our Association Support Center at 206-382-5086 to complete their reservation, and have their voucher in hand to reference the voucher number.  Registration for this summer will not be available in person at the Y or the YOST pool, will only be accepted over the phone.
