  • Pool Closure Update August 2, 2022


    The Saint Helena High School pool closed on June 24, 2022 due to a mechanical breakdown with the circulation pump. The circulation pump will be removed from the pool pump room on Wednesday August 8, 2022. The pump will be evaluated for structural integrity and its ability to function properly. If the pump can be reused, it will be repaired and returned to the pool. Then it will take two (2) to four (4) days to balance the water back to normal conditions. If the pump cannot be repaired we will purchase a replacement/new pump and begin water balance at once. The evaluation time will be approximately three (3) to five (5) days, possibly longer depending on the results. A new pump is ten (10) to sixteen (16) weeks from purchase to delivery. In the interim, staff is dosing and filtering the pool water to prevent mosquitoes.


    More updates on the progress of the pool will be published on this site. We hope to have the pool open as soon as possible for programs that are regularly available during the school year (Waves, Masters).  We are also looking into offering some community recreational swim on a few Saturdays this fall.

    Notification:  SHUSD Pool Repairs and Water Drainage Cancelled

    SHUSD was planning pool repairs in August, 2021, which require draining.  After further review of the project in light of the drought and local circumstances, these repairs have been postponed, and no drainage is required.  In the upcoming months, staff will evaluate options for the pool that support both local and statewide conservation efforts and the warrantee repairs.  

    Any questions or concerns can be addressed to Joe Perez, Director of Facilities and Aquatics, at jperez@sthelenaunified.org (707)227-2145.
