COVID-19 MN Family Communication 3-27-2020


Dear FOSS Families in Minnesota,  

We learned this week that swim lessons are part of the group of companies and services mandated to close through May 1st in Minnesota. As of today, we’re targeting Saturday, May 2nd as the next date we’ll be teaching lessons in Minnesota. 

Safety is at the core of what we do. As we look ahead to re-opening, we’re keeping safety at the center of our plans. We can’t wait to see you all back at the pool as soon as it is safe to do so. I can speak for all of us at FOSS, we miss seeing all of you each week. We miss hearing your laughter and being a part of all your learning too!  

As you know, none of us can predict what the next several weeks will hold. In that spirit, we are considering May 2nd as a flexible open date. We’ll continue to update our plan and communicate with you based on what we know at the time, and in coordination with the Minnesota Department of Health. Our commitment to you is that we’ll provide at least one week’s notice before we’re planning to be back in the pool. That’ll give us all time to plan and be ready to jump back in.  

How You Can Help
Stay enrolled in Spring. There will be 5-6 classes remaining in the Spring Quarter starting on May 2nd (depending on the day of the week that you are enrolled).  

Enroll in Summer! Enrollment opens on April 28th for once-a-week classes that start June 8th. Did you know Summer Camp schedules are already open and you can enroll today? Consider looking at the Summer Camps now in your Family Account

Credits & Installments
Credits and installments will continue to be processed during this suspension. Any missed lessons will be proactively credited to your account. Any installment payments processed during the suspension will be reduced by credits currently applied to your family account. We look forward to you using credits for lessons this Summer and Fall.  

Thank You
We continue to be encouraged by messages from all of you about wanting to see your teachers and to get back to swimming. We miss you and we miss swimming too! Thank you for your patience and for choosing to swim with FOSS. We’ll be back to our FOSS ways of singing Ring Around the Rosie, painting the ceiling, and playing chop chop timber in just a few weeks.  

Stay safe. Stay healthy.

CEO, Foss Swim School
