When Cannon School, located in Concord, NC, built a new middle school addition, they made a somewhat unconventional decision and decided to use the valuable real estate for classroom space rather than having hallways lined with lockers.
Special Considerations for a Changing School Environment
“Since many of our textbooks are online and our students have a 1:1 iPad program, we realized our students were using their old lockers for lunch boxes, sports bags, water bottles, and not much else,” Carla Moyer, Head of Middle School at Cannon School, says.
Instead, the school decided on a “cubby style” set-up. Students can come into a designated room full of lockers, drop off their items, and quickly get to class. They can easily access the room throughout the school day to retrieve items and leave others.
