While we strive to have as little red tape as possible at the Tom Dolan Swim School, we do have a few rules in our systemized approach to helping all of our customers Swim Thru Life.
Tom Dolan Swim School (the "Swim School") reserves the right to change or modify any or all of these Policies & Procedures (the "Policies") at any time. These Policies will not be modified except in writing, as posted on the Swim School website, www.tomdolanswimschool.com (the "Website"). Any change or modification made by the Swim School will be effective immediately upon posting on the Website. Your continued enrollment in the Swim School constitutes (i) your agreement to accept any changes or modifications made, and (ii) your acknowledgement and understanding that it is your responsibility to periodically review the Website and the Policies to learn of any changes.
Safety at Tom Dolan Swim School
Please be respectful of all other families by making sure your children, whether in lessons or not, are being supervised at all times. A parent or caretaker must check each child in and is responsible for their safety and good behavior unless that child is in the water with their designated instructor. We realize that many of our families have multiple children and that while one child may be in lessons, the other siblings are in the viewing room or around the locker rooms and family change stalls. Our facility can get very busy at times and we want to ensure the safety of all our families so we ask that you always keep your children in sight while they are waiting on their sibling's lessons to finish.
Locker room usage
Parents and children 5 yrs of age and over must use the locker room of their own sex. There are multiple family change rooms for families to use.
As you all are aware, our business is a mix between school and retail, which puts us in an interesting position when it comes to closings for weather related issues. Our snow policy will not follow any particular school district or government closing. To best serve our families, we will make every attempt to be open regardless of the weather. We will only post an update if we are going to be closed. On weekdays, we will announce closings by 7am for the morning lessons and 1pm for the afternoon lessons, and weekends by 6am. We will provide the closure update on our website, Facebook page, and Twitter account. If you are not able to make it to the swim school because of safety concerns due to inclement weather, our customer service team will be happy to discuss this with you.
