• Swimming Lesson Scholarship

    Scholarship Fund

    Lake Stevens School District wants to ensure equitable access to swimming lessons for all interested participants. The pool’s scholarship program, Swim Safe, has been created to help swimmers learn water safety at all age levels. Scholarships are available in honor of Lucas “Lukey” Salo, who lost his life in a pool drowning in 2015. Lukey was full of life and wonder, and he always had a magical smile. Lukey’s family wants to spread his light through the lives of future swimmers.
