iPad 1:1. What about Storage?

If you are testing out iPads in a 1:1 or if you've already gone full boar and adopted iPads in Middle School, how do you handle storage of the devices during times that students will be leaving their backpacks unattended?

If students keep their backpacks with them throughout the day, they are likely being tossed around and the potential for damage is always present, but there are times like during lunch and gym that backpacks are either left in lockers or designated areas.

Some schools may use a cart structure in which students drop off their devices before lunch and gym to keep them safe and avoid theft or damage. Others may insist that the devices are put into lockers during these times of the day. What does your school do?
