HB 402 Edna Mae McGovern Act

The Hall County School District recognizes the importance of water safety and wants to support parents in their efforts to keep their children safe. If you’re interested in your child learning to swim, the following locations provide lessons:

The Georgia Mountains YMCA
2455 YMCA Drive
Gainesville, GA 30501

Frances Meadow Aquatic Center
1545 Community Way NE
Gainesville, GA 30501

Please note: Students who miss school to attend swimming lessons will not receive an excused absence.

The Hall County School District does not provide swimming lessons, however, some of our elementary schools, in partnership with the YMCA, utilize the “Learn to Swim” program through the school day. If your child’s school participates in “Learn to Swim”, you will receive notification and more information on a separate form.
