School works to reduce vaping

Gerardo Osorio

October 22, 2019

            As of Monday, WPBHS administration decided to enforce a new rule. Teachers will be stationed in the main bathrooms during passing periods to monitor students.

            Because of recent violations of rules and vandalism in the bathrooms, the administration has decided to enforce this policy. With doors being broken off stalls in the bathrooms and so many people being caught juuling, the administration believes this is necessary.

However, students and teachers agree that although this is a good idea, it isn’t being enforced in the best way.

            Bathrooms are only watched during passing periods, and to combat bad behavior during class, students aren’t able to use the bathroom during class without their planners. Many students agree that this rule shouldn’t exist.

Freshman, Chase Sherwood added, “I feel like it’s an invasion of privacy. It feels weird to have to use the bathroom in front of teachers.”

            In addition, not all bathrooms are covered in this plan. Only the main high school and junior high bathrooms have supervision. There are still multiple bathrooms without supervision, and what this new rule does is tell students where to go.

We feel monitoring the bathrooms in pointless unless all restrooms are constantly being monitored.

            For so many reasons, this new rule is counterintuitive.
