Swim Lessons

Welcome to the Third Grade Swim Lesson Program!
2021 - 2022 Updates 
Swim

We are pleased to inform you that the 3rd grade swim vouchers for the 2021-2022 school year will be coming home in January 2022, at the end of the month. The swim vouchers will be sent to the 3rd grade classroom teacher and the vouchers will go home with the students. If you have a swim voucher from last spring 2021 it can still be redeemed this school year.

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,
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. Be on the lookout for the swim vouchers in your child's backpack! 
  • 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 Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace or Dale Turner/YMCA pools for details on how to get these beginning swim vouchers.

Thank you Verdant for this opportunity for all students in Edmonds School District to learn how to be safe in the water!
