    Family Open Swim
    The Rush-Henrietta Senior High School pool is open to district residents for family open swim during the school year. No preregistration is required; all registrations will be taken at the door. The cost for all open swims is $2 per person per hour. For admittance to the pool:

    • Participants in 5th grade or younger must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18 who remains in the pool area and provides appropriate emergency information at the door.
    • Participants who are middle school students must be signed in and out by an adult over 18 who remains in the pool area and provides appropriate emergency information at the door.
    • Participants who are Ninth Grade Academy and Senior High School students must sign in and out, and provide appropriate emergency information at the door.
    • Adult participants must sign in and out, and provide appropriate emergency information at the door.

    The first time you attend an open swim, please allow a few extra minutes to complete an emergency registration card for each participant.

    Pool Rules

    • Once admitted to the pool, all rules posted on the premises must be followed. Failure to do so will result in immediate removal from the pool and, if appropriate, the participant's emergency contact will be notified.
    • Non-swimmers must be accompanied by an adult in the water. To be classified as a swimmer, one must be able to enter and exit the water without assistance; float on stomach and back without assistance; and proceed across the width of the pool, using any form, without assistance. At any time, a lifeguard has the right to remove any participant who is deemed to be in an unsafe circumstance.
    • The school district, continuing education, and the pool staff are not responsible for lost or stolen items. A lock may be used to secure personal belongings during open swim, but must be removed at the end of each open swim. Any locks not removed shall be subject to removal by school personnel who shall be authorized to damage or destroy the same if necessary.
    • Anyone entering the Senior High School to participate in open swim, who is found to be in areas of the high school other than the pool, including school grounds, shall be deemed to be trespassing and shall be subject to appropriate disciplinary action.
    • Only Coast Guard approved flotation devices may be used in the pool; NOT acceptable are: swimmies, bathing suits with flotation pockets, bubbles, and any other non-regulation flotation device.
