Ill. school limits bathroom breaks

EVERGREEN PARK, Ill., Oct. 18 (UPI) -- An Illinois high school principal said a policy limiting students to three bathroom breaks per semester is aimed at encouraging students not to miss class time.

Evergreen Park High School Principal Bill Sanderson said the policy, which allows three breaks during class per semester with additional bathroom breaks requiring lost class time to be made up after school, is aimed at ensuring students don't use bathroom breaks as an excuse to miss class, the SouthtownStar reported Monday.

However, at least two parents, Linda Gigliello and Cathi Diamond, said they are worried about their daughters "holding it" when they run out of allowed bathroom breaks.

"It's not only that they have to make up the time. It takes up time after school when they may be in a club or have a team practice or catch a bus," Gigliello said.

Diamond said her daughter, Dominique, 15, has previously suffered from urinary tract infections and may be prone to further problems if she delays her urination breaks.
