The Waunakee Aquatic Center recognizes the National Lightning Safety Institutes recommendations.
Swimming is not permitted during thunderstorms.
All water activities are suspended for 30 minutes after lightning is sighted or thunder is heard. Swimmers must move into the lobby or hallway. They cannot be on the pool deck or in the locker rooms.
During office hours, staff will monitor the weather. Decisions about canceling school district programs or swimming lessons cannot be made until just before the start of that activity as the weather changes rapidly.
During Waunakee School District Swimming Lessons,
safety based activities will be coordinated by the instructors in the event of a thunderstorm during class time.
Waunakee Wave families should contact their organization (not the aquatic center) for weather related cancelations.
