School Locker Use at Ridge

As a reminder, all Ridge students are assigned a locker at the beginning of the school year; however, most students choose not to use their school lockers out of convenience plus there is typically not enough time to go to their lockers between classes. Because most students carry their backpacks throughout the day, the weight of the backpack can be a concern so following are some suggestions for students:

  1. Clean out notes and folders periodically to keep backpacks as light as possible.
  2. Consider putting a portion of notebooks/folder in the locker for part of the day and swapping for the other portion.
  3. Do not carry textbooks as copies (or electronic versions) are provided for school and home.

Please contact your student’s grade-level Assistant Principal if special arrangements are needed for a locker.
