SJVN POOL OPENING INFO
Posted on Jun 30th, 2020 Comments (0)

 
Our pool opens July 1, at 11am!  Please make sure you follow these guidelines:
  • Everyone should have received a few emails from Gil at PMP recently.  Below, they are linked as docs, as are the attachments.  Please review each document and follow up as appropriate!  Remember, Gil and our HOA Board worked like crazy to get our pool open, facing myriad maintenance issues with which our community was dealt.  These policies allow us to open during a global pandemic, with teenagers making close to minimum wage as our gatekeepers.  Please share your concerns and frustrations with PMP, NOT the lifeguards who have no skin in the game. 
  • 2020 pool reopening instructions and restrictions
  • 2020 waiver for pool entry
  • 2020 make payments online if behind on your dues (keep in mind this is not immediate and lifeguards don't have computers that automatically update your status).
