Discover Coding’s health and safety practices for in-person classes

At Discover Coding, the health and safety of our students and instructors is always our top priority — which is why we are excited to offer in-person programs that follow new guidelines. 

In light of Alberta’s new restrictions set on September 16, 2021, our in-person programs are going above and beyond Alberta government guidance to ensure the health and safety of all children and staff.

Our in-person programs are operating under the following health guidelines: 

Physical distancing of individual children and class groups 

  • Class sizes will be kept under 12 students and 1-2 instructors 
  • Students will be stationed at computers 2 metres apart 
  • Movement breaks will use independent in-spot movements 

Student and staff health checks 

  • Students and instructors must stay home if they are feeling ill or exhibiting any symptoms 
  • Parents must check their child’s temperature prior to each class 
  • Staff will actively symptom screen students 
  • Every staff member will check their health prior to starting their shifts 

Drop-off and pick-up etiquette 

  • Each student will have one designated parent to drop-off and pick-up (where possible) 
  • The number of people in entry areas will be limited 
  • Students will be packed up and ready to go prior to parent arrival 
  • Parents will spend no longer than 15 minutes at a time in the location  

Enhanced hand-washing protocols 

  • Students and staff will be encouraged to wash their hands frequently and follow respiratory hygiene  
  • Hand washing will be required before any snack break and after bathroom breaks 
  • Students should bring their own hand sanitizer, and we will have it available 

Frequent cleaning of equipment and surfaces 

  • High-touch surfaces, computers, technology and equipment will be cleaned regularly and thoroughly 
  • Equipment sharing will be limited 

We are committed to following Alberta Health Services guidelines to provide students with a fun and safe learning environment. We look forward to seeing you this summer, in person or virtually!
