Third Grade Swim Lessons

Welcome to the Third Grade Swim Lesson Program!Swim
We are pleased to inform you that the 3rd grade swim vouchers for 2018 are on the way to your school! This is a bit later than usual due to some updates to the new swim program. 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 at (425)431-7147 or to request a new voucher.

Key details of the new grant are:

  • 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 valid for a calendar year (2018) as opposed to a school year/summer.
  • Pool staff will still come out to 3rd grade PE classes this spring to do the water safety lessons.
  • NEW: 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.
