New Pool Rules Now In Effect
The Board of Directors has implemented changes to the pool policies based on the recommendations of the Pool Task Force, the results from the Pool Survey and resident feedback. These changes took effect Sunday, April 1 and are listed below:

  • No diapers allowed in any pool or spa.
  • Anyone who is incontinent or not fully toilet trained is not permitted in any pool or spa.
  • New children’s hours go into effect for those guests 15 years old and under.
  • Children’s hours are from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. year-round at the days and locations below:
    • Barataria – Sunday and Thursday (closure alternative: Riverbend)
    • Hidden Cypress – Monday and Friday (closure alternative: Riverbend)
    • Lakehouse (outdoor) – Tuesday and Saturday (closure alternative: Riverbend)
    • Riverbend – Wednesday (closure alternative: Barataria)
  • In addition, from October 1 to March 31 only, there will be children’s hours from 3–5 p.m. daily at Purrysburg Indoor Pool.

The Resident Host provision remains in effect when children 15 years old and under use a pool. Guests who are 16 years of age or older may use the pool during normal operating hours with a guest ID card, after checking in at the fitness center. Because there is no adjoining fitness center at Riverbend, guests with guest ID cards will need to use the pool accompanied by a resident host.

Any questions about the rules should be directed to board@schhca.com.

Be Gator Safe
Alligators have come out of their winter hibernation and are hungry and looking to mate this time of year. They will be moving from pond to pond, usually in the evenings, so be aware of your surroundings, especially when walking your pet. This type of activity usually lasts until the end of April when they become more settled.
 
Please remember that feeding alligators is illegal and dangerous, as it can lead to aggressive behavior. If you think you have an aggressive alligator on your property, call Common Area Maintenance at (843) 705-4061 during business hours or Security at (843) 705-4083 after hours.
