UPDATE: Closed Bathrooms Resolved

Bathrooms reopen Tuesday morning as students wonder to what has happened
Kieran Howsare
The boys and girls bathrooms remained closed throughout the first few hours of the day during March 19 despite maintenance members working throughout the night.

Maintenance crews worked tirelessly throughout Monday night as they worked to resolve the plumbing issue. And because of the crew’s work, they successfully fixed all issues in the building this morning during second hour.

Although students did still have to experience a few hours with no bathrooms, they were available shortly after maintenance members worked on cleaning up and fixing minor issues.

Students and staff members were in shock as they walked into the building and noticed bathrooms were still closed. All bathrooms in the school were temporarily closed except the cafe bathroom, the 500 and 400 hallway bathrooms.

“People were in disbelief that they could not go to the bathroom, and that they had to walk around to the other side of the school,” freshman Grant Meyer said.

This mess was all caused by the backup and blockage of toilet paper and disposable wipes, which over time slowly clogged the pipes. While it took hours to unclog and multiple teams to figure out where the issues were coming from, all issues were solved.

Another concern many people had was the issue concerning sanitary safety. Principal Mr. Nelson made sure the school was safe and sanitized for students and staff members.

“We are committed to ensuring a clean and functional learning environment for all students,” Nelson said in an email sent to parents and staff members.

Not only were district maintenance people were working hard, but custodians were working extra hours on keeping water contained and helping out maintenance people. Some custodians even came in early to help clean and sanitize all rooms affected.

“I went into the bathrooms to try to keep the mess out of the hallways,” custodian Paul Reinig said.

Everyone is relieved that all problems have been solved. And the clogging issue is entirely fixed and under control.
