I wouldn't let the kids play with it. Seriously, tho, it probably wasn't diseased; it just fell in and drowned. But even if it were sick, there aren't many, if any, diseases that can pass from squirrel to human, and the chlorine or other sanitizers in the pool will take care of any organic matter that entered the pool from the rodent.

What do you do when you find a dead squirrel in the pool?

The pool is probably contamiated now, because there/is a dead carcass in it. First remove the squirrel, and dispose of it. Then you will need to cleanse the pool, a bleach solution should do the job. I would try and figure out why the squirrel fell in the pool, but whatever or you can call animal control like your supposed to Not all municipalities would send someone to remove the dead animal. After it is removed you will need to "shock" the pool with the chemicals that are ordinarily used (chlorine). The amount used depends upon the size of the pool, calling a store that handles pool chemicals or the city or county health department can obtain the information needed to solve the problem.
