I have 4 kids under age 5 and was constantly bothered by their coats and shoes being lost all over the house. This has been fantastic for organizing all their hats, gloves, shoes, boots, coats, jackets, backpacks, etc. It has held up very well despite being packed with more than I ever expected to fit in it. The kids know as soon as they walk in the door to go hang up their coats and backpacks and to put their shoes in their cubbies. I anticipate being able to use this for at least 10 years to come. It's incredibly sturdy and well-made. My husband assembled it in less than an hour and the directions were very clear.
As we have learned about this incident I want to be transparent and share that a group of students did attempt to alert a member of our staff to an issue in the girls locker room approximately two weeks ago. After talking with the staff member, I believe the nature of the issue was not clear, and that had the staff member understood what exactly the issue was, they would have acted immediately. However, good intent is not good enough and I apologize that action was not taken at the time.
Other advocates of lockerless schools also cite reasons such as reducing noise by eliminating the clang of dozens of locker doors, or creating a more appealing environment aesthetically. It has also been claimed that removing lockers provides good training for students by forcing them to be more efficient in managing their books, and taking the time to plan what books they will need, and carrying only those ones.

No matter the class size or variety, school lockers are a must. Between the mix of classes, clubs, sports, and productions, there are a lot of books, uniforms, bags, homework, jackets, and everything in between. A locker is a home base for not only schoolwork, but a social spot for friends, the one place where students know that they and their belongings are secure. From hallway lockers to locker rooms, from preschool through college, we have every kind of locker for school that you could possibly need.
