Bathrooms vandalized twice

Principal James Barnhill enforces important measures to stop the vandalism in the boys bathroom. 

These measures include multiple students from the same class not being able to go to the bathroom at the same time, students are only allowed out of the classroom with a pass from a teacher, and teachers must keep track of who leaves their class so if another incident happens it can be narrowed down to a few people, and the vending machines will be closed until further notice.

The incidents that have happened is that students have put koolaid on the boys bathroom walls twice this year, both times were at the bathrooms next to the vending machines; there have also been countless amounts of graffiti in every student bathroom. 

“Let’s keep in mind we all spend a great deal of time here, as we deface areas that we all need to use, it’s not fair to everybody else who’s doing things right,” Barnhill said. 

This has also been extremely stressful for the janitors, at the end of the day they have to clean up the mess, and for the amount they get paid they should not be dealing with that. 

According to the average hourly wage for a janitor is $13 an hour and their job description is to sanitize and maintain the cleanliness of the school, with recent events it’s putting unnecessary stress on the janitors of our school.
