Students at Pa. school must ask for toilet paper

MAHANOY CITY, Pa. (AP) — An eastern Pennsylvania high school says vandalism forced it to create a policy in which toilet paper has been taken out of the boys’ bathrooms.

Boys at Mahanoy Area High School now must go to the school office to request toilet paper and sign it out. Principal Thomas Smith says that’s helped solve a major problem of bathroom vandalism that’s been going on for two years.

Smith says boys must sign out the toilet paper and then sign it back in. But the Republican-Herald of Pottsville reports some parents are protesting the policy.

Parent Karen Yedsena says some students are too embarrassed to go to the office to get toilet paper and are going home sick instead. School officials say they aren’t aware of any such problems.

"School officials say they aren’t aware of any such problems." - Of course not.

If students are "too embarassed to go to the office" and request it, how do they ever think they would find out? Morons.

Why not have a bathroom monitor keep track of who uses the restroom, and check it every 30 minutes or so to narrow down who is doing this? I'm guessing just having a volunteer bathroom monitor will stop it.

What about those situations where there isn't time to ask?
