Swim Practice Schedule:

Swim practices will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays after school (beginning on 2/22) at the Washington-Liberty pool.  Students will take a school bus from Jefferson to the pool at 2:40 PM and return to Jefferson in time to take late buses home.  The swim bus leaves from the 2nd Street side of the Jefferson building near the rec center (by the playground).  If your student wants to participate on the Jefferson swim team please have them bring a bathing suit and towel to school on February 22nd.  Students will change in the locker room at the pool.  If this sounds complicated don’t worry, it’s not.  BOTTOM LINE: The Jefferson Swim team always needs more recruits.  If your student wants to swim have them bring a bathing suit and towel on Wednesday.
