Parish third graders to learn Safety Around Water

This spring all Plaquemines Parish YMCAs and Phillips 66 will provide every third grader in Plaquemines Parish the opportunity to participate in the YMCA’s Safety Around Water program.

During this program, students will participate in dry land activities that teach them pool rules and water safety. After their lesson, students take a field trip to the YMCA pool to practice basic safety and swimming skills in the water. The program focuses on building students’ confidence in the water while teaching basic swim skills and water safety skills.
