If you’re a Freshman, you’re probably used to having your locker change from year to year. Well, that all changes at FHN. Unlike most middle schools, the locker you get at FHN is the locker you get for the rest of your time here at FHN. You’ll get real familiar with its location. Don’t fret though. It’s not nearly as bad as it may sound. Here are three simple things that you need to know about the FHN Locker Policy.

  1. The Locker Policy keeps things organized

Picture this in your head: Every year, a thousand students run around the school, searching for their new locker and placement and trying to figure out where in the world they’re suppose to be going. Not only that, but the administration staff is in a flurry trying to reassign lockers, over a thousand. Doesn’t sound pleasant, right? The way lockers work right now is a fantastic way to keep things as organized as possible. There’s no need to change lockers every year, since it would just cause a lot of confusion.

“In order to switch lockers, you have to go into the system and switch over five hundred lockers individually per grade,” Administrative Secretary Cara McHaffie Said. “Then we have to have people go to those lockers and manually switch the combinations.”

  1. There are ways to get to your locker at every turn

FHN is definitely a rather large building. It may seem hard, impossible even, to get from place to place and still be able to go by your locker. Yet students and staff will assure you that it is possible to reach your locker at least once per day, if you need to get to it. You may have to visit it during lunch, or even have to walk from one end of the school to the other and back, but it is possible.

“There is no way that every student is going to have a perfect locker,” McHaffie said. “We have to accommodate everyone, so that’s why it’s kind of luck of the draw.”

  1. There may be ways to change your locker in the future

Already, there are changes underway to the policy.

“There are always possibilities to improve the system, and we have discussed other possibilities such as, ‘do we allow students to decide if they even want a locker?’” Dean of Students Steve Moorman said. “We could look into allowing a selection, but again, that could be time and manpower intensive.”

So, for those students that barely use their locker, there may be a way to rid of them in the future, which could open up a selection for future and current students. If you would like to see policy changes like this, it is encouraged that you talk with your StuCo representative.
