Students at W.M.S. are having major problems with limited bathroom passes during their class time. Teachers use bathroom passes to limit students leaving the classroom, but students just find the passes to be annoying.

According to bladderandbowel.org, kids should use the bathroom 6 to 7 times a day, but teachers don’t hand out nearly enough bathroom passes to meet that requirement.

Parker Foley and I  interview Mr. Durocher, math and science teacher. He stated, “I think teachers use bathroom passes to monitor who is going in and out of the classroom.” He also added that “when I let someone go into the hall, I expected them to go where they said and come right back.”

When we asked Carson Foley, an eighth grader, why he thinks that teachers use bathroom passes, he told us that he thinks teachers don’t believe students actually go to the bathroom and just mess around in the hallway. He also mentioned that he doesn’t like limited bathroom passes.

Olivia Stults told us, “[Limited] bathroom passes are stupid and unneeded because kids are going to find a way to leave either way.” She also said they are unfair because it is different for everybody because some students need a bathroom pass a lot more than others do.

Jack Perrizo, sixth-grader, also agreed when he said that bathroom passes are annoying and unnecessary for most kids. He thinks only a few kids actually need to be this closely monitored. 

Students don’t have enough bathroom passes to go to the bathroom throughout the school year.
