‘Restrooms are for One Purpose Only’ — School District Facing Backlash After Removing Bathroom Stall Doors

He added, “If you’re going to spend a bunch of time in there not using the restroom for what it’s for, you have to take some measures to keep everybody safe.”

The school district has taken additional precautions regarding the threat written in the bathroom stall, including allowing students to only enter and exit the school through one door, conducting random searches, and utilizing handheld metal detectors at after-school events.

As a woman, and a parent, I have to think the removal of such privacy is actually asking for different rules to be broken. What’s to keep a young boy from walking into the girls bathroom at any point, knowing there’s nothing protecting them from his view? It’s just one of many circumstances that come to mind in this situation.

Representatives for the school district say they have heard the feedback from parents regarding the stall doors and will be taking it all into consideration.

But for now, it looks like the students of Beardstown School District will be storing some extra blankets in the bathroom.
