General Update

  • Most RECENT Update can be found HERE
  • Beginning Tuesday, September 8th, CISD as a whole will return to in person learning and school schedules will begin to return to normal.  The Swim Shop will open back up at the NAT, in addition to the Locker Rooms reopening.  The Mask Policy will still remain in place, you are to wear a mask at all times in the building except for when you are in the water. While the Locker Rooms are reopening, and you may use them, it is still highly recommended by the NAT that you arrive and leave in your suit if possible because they will be limiting the number of people in the locker room to 10 at a time.  Please continue to maintain 6 feet of separation as much as possible.  Separate entry and exit points will still be maintained
  • You will ONLY be able to sign up for a practice slot if you are an Active member of WMST with current USMS Membership, and in good standing.
  • 3 documents are linked here:  WMST Return to the CISD NatatoriumWMST CISD Practice Time Slots & Sign-Up Genius, and WMST CISD Re-Opening Plan & Guidelines.  I ask that all members please thoroughly read through and familiarize yourself with these documents as we begin our phased entry to the water.

Sign-Up Genius
