Introduction

Diablo Vista Should Have Lockers!! Final Draft Adya Roy 2nd period Are you irritated with recalcitrant back pain? Have you ever wondered why? Do you ever wish you could leave your backpack at home one day? Day and night, parents receive complaints about their children's backpack being too heavy. Do they know that these complaints increase visits to the chiropractor's which translates as increasing medical costs? This is why I feel that Diablo Vista should provide lockers. Lockers can make our three years at Diablo Vista an enjoyable time for our spines. For example, on Block days, we have half of our usual classes. To keep our backpacks fairly heavy on regular days, all our classes share a common binder. Hence, even on Block days, we still have to lug around that one, big, old, fat binder. ...read more.

Doing the math, it adds up to about a hundred and twenty dollars to a hundred and fifty. Although it may seem close to impossible to reduce the number of backpacks we buy, there is a solution. Backpacks wear out faster with weight. If we had a locker, our backpacks would wear out less. Also, backpacks would not need to be that sturdy or heavily padded for back support. The non-heavy-duty backpacks would be cheaper. We would end up saving a lot of money on backpacks. Having a locker requires responsibility, probably the main reason our school doesn't provide any.

Conclusion

Many students may use this chance to claim that their homework accidentally got left behind in the locker. In such cases, the teachers ought to either count it as late or send the T.A. with the student to grab the homework from the locker. If not found, the T.A. would report back to the teacher, and the student would face an even bigger punishment. As for cases of drugs being found in lockers, locker searches are legal and should be carried out regularly. If students were solicitating from their lockers, their locker privileges should be suspended for whatever appropriate time frame as determined by our school. In my opinion, Diablo Vista students should be provided with lockers for many reasons such as light backpacks, being able to stock up on extra stationery, learning responsibility and becoming more organized. If you want your posterity to have a healthy spine, and soar with the eagles, come join me in persuading Diablo Vista to provide lockers! ...read more.
