Sloping tops: while most lockers have flat tops, some manufacturers offer the option of sloping tops to their range of lockers. The slope may be of either 30 degrees or 45 degrees to the horizontal, sloping towards the front, and the purpose of this is to make it impossible to store items on top of the lockers, or to make it harder for dust or other debris to accumulate there. This is an important factor in places like food-processing factories or restaurants where hygiene requirements must be met.
So, what is a traditional school? Is it a consolidated school district with large school buildings and at least 30 students to a classroom? Where students are assigned to a class by age and not by reading ability? Where boys who might learn better using kinesthetic (tactile) learning are forced to learn through auditory teaching methods and so they are often left behind. For centuries learning on our continent was done in a one room school house where the teacher would have each student read to her at the beginning of the school year and then the student would be assigned reading primers and learn at their level and the results were much better than the results we are getting today. That was a traditional school. Charter schools are doing a much better job of preparing students for life after graduation. They haven't gotten all the way back to a traditional school, but they are closer. My question for Jane Feldman is, why do you want to hold on to a failing school model?
From another perspective, the Fort Collins Mennonite Fellowship has ministered to the homeless for years, which is why Pastor Steve Ramer has led the drive to bring 20 community lockers available 24-7 in the church's back parking lot. The lockers were donated to the church and are ready to go, but they are still empty awaiting approval by the planning and zoning board.

Not sure why you couldn't claim check your backpacks as described on the Rockies website. Softside bags are a permitted item but probably too large, so would be in the restricted category. Still, they have the claim check tent for those items. Food seems to be a permitted item, except that any fruit or veggie larger than a grapefruit must be sliced.
