PE Locks left Unlocked

This is a picture at the end of just one PE period!
Before we left for Thanksgiving break there were 45 locks unlocked just in the girls locker room. The lost and found is full to the brim.
The PE department policy: Any lock left unlocked will be put on the chain/bar in the locker room and all belongings will be placed in the lost and found located just outside the locker room. Any belongings left on the floor or unlocked at the end of the day will also be placed in the lost and found. We are having an issue this year and students are leaving iPhones, Apple watches, expensive belongings/clothes/shoes just laying on the benches, floor, or in an unlocked locker.
All students must lock their lock after PE and during their PE period to ensure their belongings are safe. If there are belongings in their locker they must be locked.
Also, ALL PE lost and found items will be donated on Friday, December 22.
