While I haven’t encountered this situation yet, some substitute teachers report that they are not trusted with the key to their classroom for the day. They report that they have to wait for a custodian or a school admin to unlock the classroom door before they can gain access to the room in the morning.
They are not trusted to keep the key during the day for fear that they might lose it, copy it or give it to someone to gain access.
Fortunately, the schools I work for assume I’m a trustworthy guy as demonstrated a couple weeks back when I arrived for my 4th grade assignment.
“We can’t find the key to your classroom so you can use this” the school secretary informed me as she handed over a lanyard of three keys.
“It’s the master set and opens all the doors to the school. It even has the key for the towel dispenser in the mens bathroom. If it’s out, feel free to change it”, she said with a smile.
Trust is a good feeling.
