Update on Pool Drain & Fill
The Shawnee Mission School District Operations and Maintenance crews have been working 24/7 to fast track this drain and fill project. They created a very aggressive plan and so far we are on pace. The Competition Pool has been drained, inspected and approved to fill by JCDHE, and filled. We are currently working on getting the water chemistry balanced and pool temperature within range.
Our current goal is to open normal hours and have regularly scheduled lap swimming, programs and rentals on Monday, March 29th. A swim meet has been on our schedule for this weekend and we are hoping to still host that meet as well.
This is our current plan and we have a few more hurdles to jump to get the facility back and open. We hope all goes well and we are able to stick to anticipated re-open date, but please know this is subject to change.
I want to thank those of you that reached out with kind words of thanks and encouragement to get through this. This incident and closure is not fun for any of us that enjoy the facility! We are working hard to get everyone back in the facility and we miss having everyone here.
All lap lanes will be closed until further notice.
Single Month and Annual Memberships:
All single month and annual memberships will be placed on hold and the duration of the closure will be added onto the end of your membership.
Monthly Auto-Debit Memberships
We are currently working on the best solution for these memberships. We are looking at a pro-rated reduction in fees, but without knowing the exact duration of the closure we are unable to make any adjustments at this point.
The staff here at SMSD Aquatic Center sincerely apologizes for this unexpected closure but we want to ensure we are providing a safe facility for you to visit.
