It’s lights out for the pool, literally.

The Sequoia Union High School District (SUHSD) closed four pools on Nov .25 in the district for maintenance till Jan 7 next year. Maintenance will include repairs of the boilers and pumps, the lowering of water, repairing of tiles, patching of plaster, and new LED lights.

Carlmont swimmers and water polo players have known for years that Carlmont’s pool has been in need of important maintenance. From broken lights to random boiler malfunctions, Carlmont’s aquatic sports have seen it all.

“I think it’s great that they’re improving the pool for future student athletes and club swimmers.  I remember swimming in the dark sometimes because there weren’t enough lights. Also, it’ll bring together Carlmont when they have a nicer pool to be proud of. It’s like when the football field was completed, Carlmont came together,” said Carlmont Junior Andrew Sohrabi.

Other districts like the San Mateo Union High School District recently remodeled four of their pools in 2011. Sequoia High School and Woodside High school are receiving the same maintenance while Menlo-Atherton High School is receiving new plaster and lane tile.

The SUHSD expected no  dramatic fiscal impact from maintenance on the pools. Maintenance is being performed by Burkett’s Pool Plastering for 365,742  dollars.  The other two companies, Adam’s Pool and Water Work Industries, have not put in their bids.

The football field has been renovated, the pool is being maintained so is there enough money for a new track in the future?

The pool’s closed so don’t enter.
