Do not use plastic or metal locker shelves in the locker. They do not fit properly and can often jam the locker. Also they don’t last very long.
Do not use hard plastic pencil boxes to hold supplies. When they are dropped and spill, they create a safety hazard for students in the hall and on the stairs.
Do not use binders that are larger than 2 inches (including zipper binders) unless you plan on carrying them the entire day. They do not fit in the lockers properly and can often jam or damage the lockers.
Do not use stickers or any type of adhesive in the lockers. Do not write in the lockers (even with dry erase markers).
Do not hang anything (mirror, dry erase board, etc.) above the locking mechanism on the inner locker doors as it will damage the lock and jam the locker.
Do not bring large backpacks or backpacks with wheels to school. They will not fit in the locker and will damage or jam the locker.
Do not bring all school supplies the first day of school. You will only need a folder with paper and pens/pencils.
Do not wait until lunch to put money in your lunch account.
Do not bring books into the lunch line. You must put them on a table before getting in line.
Do not worry about tardies the first week of school!
