Disciplinary Action

In an effort to prevent some of the confrontation that occasionally occurs, the Pool Committee has asked that residents and their guests refrain from abusive language, disorderly behavior, inappropriate behavior, and other infractions of the existing rules.

 

Should there be problems with individuals at the pool, the following disciplinary action will be followed.

 

  • First Offense:  Individual will be given a warning by the Life Guard or Pool Committee member

 

  • Second Offense:  Individual will sit out of the pool for 10 minutes.     

 

  • Third Offense:  Individual will lose pool privileges for that day.     

 

Any individual that has their pool privileges suspended for a day; 3 times will not be allowed in the pool area until the individual or their parents/guardian attends a meeting with the Board of Directors to resolve the issues causing the suspensions of their privileges.


The Pool Committee wants to insure a safe and pleasurable summer at the pool for all POF residents. Your adherence to the rules and regulations will help them accomplish this goal.
