Allow Travis TAG Students to go to their Lockers Between Classes

This petition had 52 supporters

As we all know, a rule has been put in place prohibiting students from going to their lockers between classes. To Quote the rule, "Middle School students are allowed to go to lockers in the morning, before and/or after lunch and at the end of the school day only. ". However, what the rule fails to mention is the reason for this rule. Why should students not be allowed to visit their lockers between classes? Going to lockers between classes ensures that students will have all materials necessary for the next class. However, if a student is unable to visit his locker one morning, they might not have the materials necessary for their first five classes. One major reason that a student may be unable is if they have a first period class on the first floor. They are required to walk up to the third floor, pick up their materials, then go back down the stairs, fighting the tide of students whose classes are on the third floor, and risk being tardy for their first period. The only alternative to this would be for the student to not go to their locker until lunch and hope that no necessary materials are in their locker or go between classes, risking being caught breaking the rule.

As mentioned above, there is no reason for a student not to be able to go to their locker between classes; yet, there are many reasons that they should and many ways that it could help the student. This rule could also hurt teachers. If many students do not have materials, it would be next to impossible to organize a class project. This rule hurts both teachers and students without really benefitting anyone.

Because of this, you should sign this petition. It will show that you care about this issue and will help this rule be removed.
