We are committed to maintaining a safe space for all members of our Explorer Hop community, including students, parents, teachers and staff. One of the most important ways we can achieve this is by turning on your webcam and verifying your student status.
Students in our program are placed by ages for particular programs, with some of our classes having children as young as 6 years old in them. Therefore, the instructor should be able to verify that you are in fact a child through the webcam. Please turn on your video at least for the first day of your class.
If your video is turned off and your classmates cannot see you, they might be uncomfortable and feel unsafe. We want to make sure all students feel safe and comfortable to continue to their studies without distractions.
We also understand that some families might not have access to a device with video or will not want to turn on the camera for other reasons. In this scenario, please let your instructor know in advance so we can verify your student status.
Please email at least a week before the beginning of your class to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request or other concerns.
