We, the parents of children who attend AUHSD high schools and/or use the AUHSD aquatics facilities, implore you to keep our high school pools open for socially-distanced water polo and swim conditioning. 

The local water polo clubs and swim organizations to which you rent your aquatics facilities have been integral to the physical and mental health of our children during the pandemic.  By providing outdoor conditioning opportunities, these organizations have provided our children with one of, if not the only, opportunity to maintain their physical health and to achieve the accompanying mental health benefits.  They have done so in socially responsible ways, complying with state and local health guidance.  The results have been tremendously successful in terms of both the physical fitness and mental health of the many hundreds of children who are engaged in these activities, as well as the apparent zero rate of transmission of the COVID-19 virus during these outdoor activities.

California’s December 3rd Order, which has been adopted by the County, is very clear that "[t]o promote and protect the physical and mental well-being of people in California, outdoor recreation facilities may continue to operate." (December 3, 2020 Order, paragraph 2.g.)  Of course the use of recreational facilities must be socially-distanced.  We therefore respectfully request that AUHSD permit your local water polo club and swim organization tenants to continue to rent the AUHSD aquatics facilities in order to provide socially-distanced and COVID-19 protocol compliant water polo and swim conditioning for the physical and mental health benefit of our children.
