WOODBURY - With Memorial Day weekend here, many people are turning their attention toward summer activities such as heading to the beach and swimming, but officials have a warning for beachgoers out so early in the season.

Officials say that most beaches aren't fully staffed with lifeguards during the week, leaving some swimmers unprotected. A full staff of lifeguards will be on hand during weekends.

Lifeguards will be at most beaches everyday starting in mid-June.

Officials say the reason is that many lifeguards are college students and they won't be home until then.
