Teacher's bathroom note to students sparks outrage

·Lifestyle Editor


A teacher’s outrageous bathroom pass letter to her students has left parents up in arms.

The note, which was posted to social media by Twitter user @iJaadee, is titled: “Mrs. White’s 8th Grade Admin/Bathroom/Water/Nurse Pass.

It goes on to say that each child – who are as young as 13 – is only allowed to leave the class twice to either use the bathroom, see the nurse or to get water, in an entire month.

Once the two boxes on the letter are signed by Mrs. White, the children aren’t allowed to leave the classroom again for the rest of the month unless they have a doctor’s note.

Mrs. White says in the letter that she knows her letter is ‘petty’ but the children are made the sign off permission for their teacher to deny them the opportunity to visit the restroom, nurse or get water during their lesson.

Twitter user @iJaadee posted a screenshot of the note online, alongside the caption: “Your child comes home and shows you this note her teacher had her sign at school. What’s your reaction?”

Needless to say, people were pretty furious over the teacher’s actions. Take a look at some of the responses below:

However, others were sympathetic to the teacher and how hard it is to control a classroom full of kids.

According to a local Memphis news site, the school released a statement about the letter, claiming it is ‘currently reviewing the circumstances under which the document was prepared and distributed to students’.

“Please know the safety and care of our students is always our first priority. It is important that students know we respect them and are responsive to their needs,” the statement read.

“To reinforce these values, we convened our full team today to review all relevant policies and procedures. We will continue to work with our teachers and staff to ensure all school policies and values are consistently maintained in each classroom.”
