Scout Aquatics Newsletter – August 10 UPDATE: The IHSA has given high schools a plan for sports and now we continue to wait for approval from a few sources. In addition to getting the many approvals, LFHS is currently working to fix/upgrade the HVAC and air handlers in the pool to optimize air flow. The school wants to make sure all environments inside the building are as safe as possible before they move further. Again, I hope that the ability of the high school team gaining access to LFHS pool...

Scout Aquatics Newsletter – August 3 Update: The IHSA has given high schools a plan for sports. The IDPH now needs to approve that plan and then our local school district needs to approve it as well.

Scout Aquatics Newsletter – July 13 No new updates: It looks like it will still be some time before our program can get into some water. I was hoping to get some information from the school district today about a plan, however they are still being very cautious. As of now, the LFHS school district still does not feel it is safe to move our school out of phase one. With this news, we will not be able to get together for water or dryland practices yet. I know that...

Unfortunately we do not have any new information about our team getting back in the water. Message from Coach Flo: Hello Swimmers! Hope you all had a great 4th of July.
