Restrictions on Toilet Paper?
A Pennsylvania high school, after a rash of vandalism reports in the boys’ bathrooms, imposed a toilet paper restriction on all the boys in the school.
All boys in the school have to request toilet paper from the nurse or the main office and sign it out and back in on every use.
The principal of the school explained to the school board by saying, “We’ve had serious destruction to our bathrooms for the past two years.”
He continued to the board members, “We have a case pending with police where a bathroom down by our gymnasium was absolutely destroyed. I’m sure our district facilities director could tell you the times that our toilets have been jammed with toilet paper and other papers. It was our way to try to curb the destruction in the bathrooms.”
Parents were upset by the measure and included that students were embarrassed to ask to check out the toilet paper. The principal noted he could be swayed to put the toilet paper back in the bathrooms, but warned, “If the bathroom is destroyed, it will be removed.”
