End of Session Procedure: Please note that all pools start clearing the pool 10 minutes prior to the facility closing. For example: If the pool facility closes at 8:00 pm for the evening session, our staff start clearing swimmers from the pool at 7:50 pm.
Daycare Policy: The Fargo Park District provides lifeguards to ensure that all patrons are safe while swimming. Daycares are to provide supervisors to enforce rules and help discipline their children that misbehave. The Fargo Park District follows the Cass County Health Department's daycare mandated child to adult ratios. 10 to 1 ratio for all school-age children (ages 5 and older) and 7 to 1 ratio if at least one child is younger than school age (age 5).
At least one half of daycare staff are required to enter the pool when the children they are supervising are in the pool, the other half must remain on deck to supervise the remaining children. If the majority of the children are swimming then the majority of the supervisors must be watching the children at the EDGE of the pool. During any breaks at the pool, the supervisors need to know where the children are at all times. If you see one of the lifeguards speaking to one of your children please send a supervisor over to see what happened. Please remember that the supervisors are role models for the children and they must follow the rules at ALL times and help enforce them as well.
*Please read through the pool rules with your children prior to coming to the pool.
Safety Policy: Lifejackets are mandatory for non-swimmers in the main pools at all locations (this policy does not include the wading pools at Island Park and Madison).The swim test will be administered to asses swimming ability and the classification of non-swimmers is at the lifeguard's discretion. Facility supplied life jackets are available on a first come first serve basis. For any further details or concerns please see the pool manager.
Thank you for helping to make the pools a more safe and enjoyable place.
