PERRIS, Calif. (May 21, 2019) –– The City of Perris is diving into summer with the 2019 Summer Aquatics Program launch event on Saturday June 15, 2019 at the community swimming pool at Perris High School.

Recreation Supervisor Cynthia Lemus is happy to have the aquatics program back and to teach young children not to fear the water.
“The City of Perris is excited to welcome the summer aquatics programs back for the 2019 summer,” said Lemus. “Swim lessons are such a vital part of childhood and we want to help the children in the community learn about safety in and around the water and ultimately, to be more comfortable in the water.”
