Reesa Standish started this petition to Mattituck Jr/Sr Highschool and

Mattituck Jr/Sr Highschool has a bathroom closing problem. Our school has had the highschool wing bathrooms closed from the end of last year and this year. We are only allowed to use two bathrooms in the building as highschoolers. These two bathrooms have 4-5 stalls in total. The gym bathroom having 3-4 and the Cafeteria having 1. We are not allowed to use the jr high bathrooms otherwise we get into trouble. Girls are resulting to peeing on the floor because there is no empty stalls or clean stalls. The bathrooms are poorly taken care of; feminine hygiene products, fecal matter, toilet paper, and urine cover the bathroom. The little amount of bathrooms we have is an issue, students should be able to use and access the highschool wing bathrooms without issue. We shouldn’t be closing bathrooms. Most students have to walk half way across the school to use the bathrooms we are supposed to use. 

The school’s excuse for closing these bathrooms is because of “vaping”. Closing bathrooms will not stop the use of vapes or vape products. If anything it will make it worse and students will become sneakier. We can stop the vaping issue by purchasing vape detectors, which will reduce the use of vape products. If the school can’t afford these detectors, we can fundraise. Using the bathroom is important, we shouldn’t be restricted of bathroom usage because of a few students mistakes.
