*Remind App – for Lesson & Practice Status for Weather!
We’ve created an account on the REMIND App! We’ll make a decision on status of each practice or lesson 30 minutes prior to the start time. If we cancel a lesson or practice, we will send it out on the REMIND App and you will be informed of your lesson OR practice cancellation! You can join by downloading the REMIND App and then text @aquakidsl to 81010 OR go to https://www.remind.com/join/aquakidsl
If you do not receive a text cancelling your lesson or practice, it is still ON! Of course, with our Florida weather and FAST moving storms, we may still have to cancel due to a weather (lightning) situation! We do conduct lessons and practices in the rain and cancel for lightning!
