Installation of lockers at DMA

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

The addition of lockers for the Secondary Students (grades 6 - 12) is needed immediately. These students, ranging between the ages of 11 and 18, need to have a safe place to store their books, lunch, and personal belongings so that they do not have to carry an overweight backpack to every class on their daily schedule.  Carrying more than 10-15% of their bodyweight lead to back pain and posture problems.  These pains and problems can develop to be chronic, lifetime issues. Installing lockers will help alleviate the strain on their backs from the weight of the backpacks they are currently carrying around campus.  Since there are limited number of smooth/paved walkways, a rolling bag cannot be used, therefore lockers are the only solution.
