Community Open Swim

Come and enjoy the pleasure and the benefits of swimming!


Community Open Swim at the Penn High School Pool is available 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.)
