“Don’t worry that children never listen to you, worry that they are always watching you,” said Robert Fulghum.

Students enter Lake County Intermediate School (LCIS) daily and see that our swimming pool has been closed for over a year. Replacing/repairing the swimming pool was listed as a budget priority in the report created after an inspection of the facility by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) last July. CDE estimated $1,254,349 was needed for immediate repairs to make the pool usable for the next 25 years.

LCIS is structurally sound. There are 31 years remaining on the multi-story steel building, according to the CDE report published Sept. 8, 2021.

Local taxpayers and their families need a safe place to swim while visionaries aspire to construct a multi-million dollar-rec center.

Children are watching us. Please, let’s maintain and operate what we have to its full potential.
