There was a purple locker in East High School that was made different from every other locker for a reason, but now it’s no longer in use. The purple locker was a way for students to anonymously communicate with staff members if there were any problems going on in school or in their personal life. The student support center would check the purple locker and try to address the situation as much as they could.
A lot students feel like they have no one to talk to or feel hesitant to address a problem in person. This technique of writing down your problems on a piece of paper and slipping it into the purple locker made getting help easier for some scholars. This locker was a great contribution considering that we are all young adults in high school and we will come across problems that we can’t face alone. We need a system like the purple locker, because it made life a little easier for students knowing that someone knows what they’re going through and is trying to help them out and give them advice. Now, we have a different system called “Let’s Talk.”
The purple locker was discontinued, but we currently have a system similar to that. It’s an online portal to communicate concerns with the appropriate people in the building that can help fix that problem. It is called "Let's Talk,” and you can find it on the East High School Website. When you find the link, it shows you what to do from there. You can choose to submit your answers anonymously or you can let them know who you are. So if you have a problem and don’t know who to tell, “Let’s Talk” is the new “Purple Locker” to help scholars who need it.
