Diablo Vista Should Have Lockers!!

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.

Equipping our school with lockers would undoubtedly reduce the constantly increasing number of slouching teenagers. A locker would also be helpful for special items you need for only one or two periods a day, for example, your calculator or graph paper.
