Aqua-Tots Swim Schools Peoria and Surprise Reopens with Heightened Safety Measures
By Lisa Padilla - Monday Jun 01, 2020
Aqua-Tots Swim Schools has announced the reopening of its Peoria and Surprise locations will be Tuesday, May 26, following a temporary closure to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Aqua-Tots Swim Schools has created a “Full Circle of Safety” program with guidance from the US Swim School Association, the CDC and local government officials. Full Circle of Safety focuses on a modified swim school environment for the health of all students, families and staff as well as upholding the safety of swim lessons and facility cleanliness.

“We are excited to reopen our doors to serve the West Valley community,” said Aqua-Tots Swim Schools Peoria and Surprise Franchise Owner Jamie Cartledge. “The world has changed in recent months, but water safety and swim lessons are more important than ever as families are going to be spending more time at home and around the water.”

On the heels of the worldwide pandemic and debuting during the start of an Arizona summer when most drowning accidents happen, the new Full Circle of Safety measures at Aqua-Tots Swim Schools in Peoria and Surprise will feature:

• Limited in-school attendance to one parent/guardian and the swim student only
• Limited number of people in the lobby and pool area
• Daily wellness and temperature checks for all staff
• Face masks for front desk staff and face shields or full snorkel masks for coaches
• Curriculum adjustments to reduce face-to-face exposure and social distancing during swim lessons
• Enhanced school-wide sanitation procedures throughout the day
• Hand sanitizing stations for continuous use
• Increased pool chemistry checks throughout the day
• Sanitation of all pool toys used in lessons
• Lobby chairs adjusted to meet social distancing guidelines
• Play area temporarily closed
• Rescheduled group or private lessons for swimmers experiencing symptoms
• Small class sizes with a maximum of five people including one instructor
• Retrained and recertified staff for post COVID-19 water safety education
Since its establishment in 1991 and first location opening in Mesa, Ariz., safety has been a top priority for Aqua-Tots’ swim programs and their pools have always implemented the highest level of commercial sanitation and filtration systems which maintain the proper chlorination levels.
