Lightning Policy

Shawano High School procedures regarding lightning are based on the National Lightning Safety Institutes recommendations:

   1.  Swimming is not permitted during thunderstorms. 

   2.  All water activities are suspended for 30 minutes after lightning is sighted or thunder is heard. 

 During pool usage hours, staff will monitor the weather. 

 Decisions about canceling school district programs, water aerobics or swimming lessons cannot be  made until just before the start of that activity as the weather changes rapidly.

 During Shawano School District Swimming Lessons, safety based activities will be coordinated by the  instructors in the event of a thunderstorm during class time.
