Community Open Swim

Little swimmers


P-H-M Open Swim is canceled due to the COVID-19 national emergency. 

Thank you for your understanding.

Come and enjoy the pleasure and the benefits of swimming!


Community Open Swim at the Penn High School Pool is available FREE of charge to P-H-M students and their families, and community members who live within the school district’s boundaries. P-H-M staff may also participate, regardless of residency. 


Children must be completely potty trained (no swim diapers are allowed) AND must also be at least 4-years-old.


Lifeguards are on duty but parents must supervise their children. Children in grades 8 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Swimmers should bring a towel and locker padlock. (P-H-M is not responsible for lost or stolen items.) 


Please contact Community Education (574) 258-9568 if you need more information.  




*Note that Open Swim does not take place on school recess days & holidays. Recess days and holidays are listed on the P-H-M school year calendar.  If school closing is announced due to weather, the Penn Pool/Community Open Swim will also be closed.  



P-H-M Learn to Swim registration that was to begin on Monday, April 13 is canceled. Due to the fluidity of the situation, we are not opening registration for Learn to Swim classes for Summer 2020. We will notify patrons via social media, the PHM website and should the situation change.

Have a youngster who needs to learn how to swim? P-H-M provides qualified instructors to give swimming lessons to children 4-years-old and older in the Penn Pool over the summer. Three sessions of lessons are offered through the P-H-M Community Education Program. Classes are 30 minutes in length and take place both in the morning and afternoon.
