School Defends Moving Boys' Toilet Paper To Principal's Office

Posted: Updated:
MANAHOY CITY, Pa. -

Toilet paper has become a hot commodity at one Pennsylvania high school. The principal removed it from the boys' bathroom and is making boys sign it out when they need it.

Administrators say they had to, there was too much vandalism, and they warned the kids multiple times.

The toilet paper was removed from one of three boys' bathrooms at Manahoy Area High School in Schuylkill County.

They say students were intentionally clogging toilets and streaming it all over the floor.

Now, boys must go to the main office to sign out the toilet paper and then sign it back in.

Students say this is embarrassing and parents think there is a better way to solve the problem.

FOX 29's Shawnette Wilson spoke with school Principal Thomas Smith on the phone. He admits this is a drastic move but says he made the decision after five failed warnings to the student body and that bathroom sustained about $2,000 dollars in damage.

Wilson had more reaction from local parents in her video report, which you can watch above the story.
