Do the parents of all the High school students at East Ridge High School know that the restrooms are locked and the students are not alowed to go to the restrooms, with out being escorted by the staff? This is in response to a fight that occured between two students, not in the restrooms but in a classroom. No longer can a student have a hall pass to go to the restroom, they must wait till a staff member comes and take them out of class, at the staff members convenience. I feel that they are treating these children wrongly due to the fact that two students choose to fight, and the punishment is going on the other students of East Ridge. Do you not relieve yourselves when the urge hits you,not at East Ridge, you must urinate at their conveince.

I don't see how they can do that. Even people in jail gets to use the bathroom when they need too.

I believe that on monday the whole entire school should have a sit down and when the bell rings in the morning that all the classes go to the gym and sit untill they agree not to lock the bathrooms because this is stupid. The doors to the bathroom are only open till lunch and then closed the rest of the day? I mean, what are we suppose to do, when we have to go all the way down stairs when all of the classes are upstairs. And then when we are late for class we get wrote up for safe. Oh and did I mention you can't get in a stall for all the smokers? East Ridge High school needs to change and the students are the ones who need to give it to them.

The only thing East Ridge needs to do is put bars on the windows they have already taken everything else from us. I think this is ridiculous, I learned how to use the bathroom by myself when I was like 2-3 I don't need someone to hold my hand, being a Senior in High School. The fight at school happened while we were switching classes not during classes.

Patty Johnson, I think is ruining our school.
She has even criticized teachers about the work they are giving us Some of them have been there when she was in school. They have more experience and I think would know better on what to do in class than Patty Johnson would.

I attended Millard High School, and we tried to have a sit down over something, I really cant remeber what it was over now.
Anyway, we were told by the principal if we did not get to class right that moment then they were calling the police on us, and they would have the police remove us from the school. Im not sure what their reason for that was, they told what we were doing was called. Anyway, if the students do try to do this, im sure they will get the same response as we got when we tried it. They also told us every student that was not in class before the tardy bell would be punished as well. So, those two threats pretty much scared everyone into class.

Where are the teachers and the staff when kids are switching classes?I thought they were supposed to watch the halls.This is a load of bullshit.Kids should go when they need to with a hall pass,not escorted like crimnals.Sounds like the teachers need to step up and do a little better job,and not punish all the kids.

What if the kid gets a stomach virus while they're at school? Do they have to wait until a teacher has the time to escort them to class? Some bodily functions just can't be held (without getting too graphic). I would sue the hell out of that place if my child ended up being degraded and embarrassed in front of the whole school because he crapped his pants.
Another thing, shouldn't the teachers be in class watching the group of students instead of babysitting the one who has to go pee? I don't have a child in East Ridge YET but I will and I don't want him treated like an animal when he gets there.
Is there a PTA at that school? When is the next meeting? All the parents should be there and protest this.

If you checked out most if not all schools , they do the same thing. They think all bladders, ect. should be trained by grade 1. All but theirs , they go when they want!

This is so stupid. Dont the staff have anything better to do than escort students to the bathroom. I have had to be escorted to times, Iam not a bad student never have been so why should I be punished now???? Us students have to use the bathroom just like the staff, and they dont have to be escorted.
