UPDATE: TCU cancels swimming lessons for rest of week

Tri-City United Schools have canceled the swimming lessons for the rest of this week, according to Mary Simon of Community Education.

Lessons are canceled today, Wednesday, June 19, Thursday, June 20 and Friday, 21. Lessons, for the two-week swim session, started just two days ago.
Simon said they were just informed that lockers are being painted this week, and that the building needs to be vacant of people due to the paint’s fumes. She added that community education did not know this was planned until site preparations were done on Monday.
As of now, lessons on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, June 25-27, will be extended by 15 minutes, and Friday, June 28 will be used as a testing day instead of a free day. Simon added that the swimmers affected by this schedule change will receive a free swim pass to Open Swim for the inconvenience. Questions can be directed to Community Education at 507-364-8120, 8110 or 8107. You can also stop in the office that is located in the Middle School at 101 2nd Street. N.E., Montgomery, or send an email to msimon@tcu2905.com. (Lori Nickel Photo)
