Swim classes had already been scheduled for the San Ramon Valley pool, but it is located too close to the gym to be kept open during the demolition, said Robbie Lyng, senior construction project manager with school district.
"Safety is the district's No. 1 goal," Lyng said. "We will not have people in the pool when we're demoing the building."
"We've asked the town of Danville and the district to make other arrangements to book the program," he continued.
The plan is to begin the project as soon as school gets out for summer and have it completed by the time school starts again in the fall.
Swim lessons will still be held at Monte Vista Community Pool per usual.
Group and private swim lessons will be offered for ages 3-15 as well as adult lessons for ages 15 and up, and an Aquatots class for ages 6 months to 4 years.
There are also free swim lessons available in exchange for helping the aquatics staff practice their teaching techniques.
Lifeguard courses are offered for those interested in obtaining lifeguard certifications. The first is Junior Lifeguard Basics for ages 12-15; students can advance to the Junior Guard Program and then on to the Lifeguard Training course.
Registration for lessons began Tuesday, April 1, for Danville and Alamo residents. For more information, visit www.ci.danville.ca.us or call 314-3400.
