Lansing Pool Open for 2017-2018 School Year: With the new school year on the horizon, Lansing Central School District will once again have a pool to call home. Work has completed on the pool and it will be open again for the 2017-2018 school year. The history of the pool reconstruction extends back to 2013, when updates and repairs were made to the pool as a part of the 2013 capital project, called the Building Core Reconstruction Project (BCR). The capital project began in the spring of 2013, and the pool repairs stretched into the school year. As a result, the pool was not open for the start of the 2013-2014 school year, making it unavailable for the girls’ swim season. Swim team practices and meets were moved to other pools for this school year. For the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school years, the pool was up and running. ... more >>
