The RCS Aquatics Center will be operating on our regular schedule beginning Monday, April 22. The pool was closed due to concerns over the presence of low-level electrical voltage in pool area. School officials immediately closed the pool and the district began working with an electrician, a third-party electrical engineer and National Grid to identify and correct any issues.
Although National Grid found no measurable stray voltage in the pool, the district performed additional testing to confirm those findings. The district also installed active monitoring systems to further safeguard the safety of swimmers in the pool.
The results of the testing were verified by insurance underwriters and by the NYS Health Department, allowing the pool to reopen April 22.
