Dolphin Academy COVID-19 Update

At Dolphin Academy, we have been following the COVID-19 situation. This is new territory for all of us and the safety of our Dolphin families and our Dolphin Academy employees is always our main focus.

As you know, in our area many K-12 schools will be closed for the next 2 weeks. We are not part of this directive, but because we serve children and families, we have decided to close Dolphin Academy Swim School as well. This will mean we are closed from now until at least March 30th.  Families may fill out a make-up form online, and the 30-day window in which to do the makeup will be waived.  We are offering makeups as a way to ensure continuity for your swimmers and to support our coaches during this uncertain time. 

At Dolphin Academy, we strive to keep our facility as clean as possible. As our normal routine, every half hour, we wipe down all changing area surfaces, door handles, benches, restrooms, etc. We continually keep the chlorine level in our pool at a minimum of 1.0ppm. The Coronavirus dies at a chlorine level of 0.5ppm.  In addition to using Chlorine as a disinfectant, we have a state-of-the-art UV system that kills any bacteria or virus that chlorine does not.  Though we feel our facility is clean and safe, if isolation can flatten the curve, then as a community, maybe we can stem the tide of this virus.

If you have any questions, please contact us via email: – we are not sure how many staff we will have in the building so email will work best.

Everyone, please stay safe and stay healthy.  We will keep you posted over the next few weeks as more information is understood and released.  Thank you for your understanding but more importantly, thank you for allowing us the privilege to teach your precious children each week.
