The pools at Vernon Hills High and sister school Libertyville High have been temporarily closed for the repairs, which were prompted by federal and state safety regulations. Under the law, drain systems of pools and spas across the country needed to be fitted with safer equipment to prevent swimmers from being trapped under water.
