for same nite
did not keep these students away
1st Dance of the 2008 season.This was a big turnout in spite of the rainy forecast. The initial rain occured at 9:00pm which led to 25% of the students departing the dance.The remainder f the group continued dancing in spite of a slow drizzle.The rain intensified at 9:40. I finally ended the dance at 9:55pm.Since there was no thunder or lighting we were able to continue the dance.In the event of lighting all students must leave the dance area and remain indoors for their own protection.Unfortunately for me I had to disassemble my equipment during the a heavy dourpour which lasted about 30 minutes.I'm not complaining since this was a very successful dance which was appreciated by all including the JFK Staff.
For your peace of mind your children are safe at JFK Pool Splash Party Dances.These dance feature 3-5 uniform policeman along with a large staff patroling the pool. These people are not in the office sitting around.
This dance is highly supervised by life guards,manager,assistant manager,JFK Staff,& 3-6 Policeman in uniform.There is no smoking allowed by anyone on the premises,there is an age limit which is 12th grade and the parking lot is watched after the dance is ended.Anyone congregating in the parking lot will be asked by the Police to leave.No one can leave the dance and return.Anyone passing items thru the fence may be asked to leave.Plus anyone with alcohol on their breath will be breath-a-lized and taken to City Hall.All parents are welcome to preview the dance while your child is here.In my opinion these students are well behaved and and as a parent/grandparent I can say,"these kids are the best"!!
Anytime there is lighting along with the showers,the dance will be immediately canceled due to the dangers of Lighting.Some of the students were waiting at 10:15pm and still had not been picked up by their parents.
PS: Students throwing thrash in the pool area. Do Not Do this!!!!!Use the Garbage Cans please. Plus you must wear a swim suit when entering the pool.
