School District Announces Summer Swim Program

The St. Bernard Parish School Board will sponsor swimming lessons this summer at the Chalmette High School Swimming Pool to current 1st-5th graders who are residents of St. Bernard Parish.

Two sessions are offered, May 27th – June 7th and June 10th – 21st. Each session consists of 10 one-hour swim classes taught by certified water safety instructors. A lifeguard will also be on duty.  Classes begin at noon each day and run throughout the day with the final class beginning at 3:15 P.M. There is a $50 charge per session in order to offset the costs of pool maintenance and swim staff. 

Limited spots are available in both sessions, and registration is completed on a first-come-first-served basis.   Registration applications are available at the St. Bernard Parish School Board Office – 200 E. St. Bernard Hwy.  The offices are open from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday-Thursday, and until 4:00 p.m. on Friday.  Please be prepared to present proof of residence in St. Bernard and the $50 lesson fee at the time of registration.  All registrations must be submitted by Wednesday, May 22nd.

Please note that parents are not able to attend lessons with their child. This creates a distraction and can present a safety hazard during class time.  Parents are responsible for transportation to and from swim class.

For additional information, please visit or call Yvette McNamara at the School Board Office, 301-2000.
