Gilmour Academy swimmers will change into a bathing suit at the Lower School, and will be bussed to the pool.  All other swimmers will need to arrive in a bathing suit.  We are unable to transport children back to the lower school following lessons at this time. All swimmers must be picked up at the pool after lessons.  Swimmers may be dropped off and picked up in the pool area, if preferred.
