Pool Waiver

Family Hours (June 3 – August 2)
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday | 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Tuesday and Thursday | 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.
(Days and times are subject to change by the University.)

The pool will still be open for our students at these times, but you and your family are welcome to come use the pool during these designated hours.

This invitation to you as a full-time faculty or staff member is limited to you, your spouse, and your dependent children.  You cannot bring your extended family or friends of your children or family.  You must be present at the pool with your children at all times.  You cannot drop them off and then come back and pick them up.  You cannot assign a sitter to accompany them to the pool.  In order to access the pool, you will need to have your ETBU Faculty or Staff ID to scan at the entry gate. 

Since there will be NO LIFEGUARD ON DUTY, we are requiring you and your spouse to sign the attached waiver on behalf of your dependent children.  You must have this waiver form signed and on file in the Office of Student Engagement prior to participating in Family Hours at the Pool.

I hope you and your families will be able to take advantage of these designated Family Hours to enjoy the ETBU pool.

As a reminder, the following are the rules that govern the pool and other outdoor recreational facilities.
