Chesterton High School will be offering swimming lessons
Chesterton High School will be offering swimming lessons for Duneland School children this spring and summer. Lessons are for ages 4 and older of all skill levels.
The program will be provided by the high school swimming coaching staff, team members and led by Head Coach Mat Pavlovich. This is a great program for water safety purposes or a springboard to competitive swimming with the Duneland Swim Club. Coach Pavlovich has many aquatic certifications and is a WSI (Water Safety Instructor). The lifeguards will hold current LG (Lifeguard) certifications.
Instructional groups will be organized with the goal of four (4) students or less in most groups. Therefore, based on the number of in-water instructors we have available, sign-ups are on a first come/first serve basis and could close quickly. Classes are typically capped around 40 total students. More parental information will be available at registration.

Regular attendance and punctuality are essential to good performance in school! Our students are expected to attend all of their classes on a daily basis. Students that participate in afternoon extracurriculars will not be able to participate if they miss school without medical documentation.
Students that accumulate 8 blocks of unexcused absences receive a one hour detention.
Students who skip a block of school, which is defined as truancy, will receive a 2 hour detention.
If your student must miss school, you have 48 hours to excuse their absence. We send out daily emails & calls for unexcused absences. If you feel that an absence is in error, please contact the attendance office at the number below.
