No hanging out in locker bays
September 6, 2020
This year, lockers have been a thing of the past for Stratford Academy upper-school students.
Lockers have not been individually assigned to students as a precaution against the rise of the virus. Students now must carry all of their books around with them, but many teachers have been willing to keep textbooks in their rooms instead of making the students carry them.
Upper-school principal, Mrs. Theresa Ferrari believes that the decision to not have lockers this year has been beneficial in keeping the spread on Covid cases to zero but also has been beneficial to keeping the hallways less crowded and a better flow of traffic has been noted.
School officials have allowed students to place books in lockers if they are too cumbersome to carry but wants to keep the lockers bays free from being a “hang-out zone”.
