Keeping hands clean through washing one’s hands with soap and water is one of the most important steps one can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Hand-washing is crucial in staying healthy year round, but especially during the winter months with more germs present.
Students and staff began noticing the lack of hand soap in early December. “The soap dispensers are being destroyed by students everyday,” reported Linda Berkheimer, the school business administrator and who is responsible for purchasing new dispensers.
Security is aware of the issue, but are in no rush to replace them. “Boys are continuing to disrespect the facilities. In the meantime, we suggest that boys carry hand soap with them, and take advantage of hand sanitizer,” said the new security head, Neil Owns
Many teachers are not aware of this problem as they use staff bathrooms themselves. “ I would be outraged if my son did not have hand soap to wash his hands at school,” said science teacher Britani Greco.
