School Relocates Toilet Paper Dispensers Amid Vandalism Concerns
Murray County High School recently addressed an online photo showing toilet paper dispensers placed outside bathroom stalls instead of inside. The school district attributed this change to severe vandalism in the boys' restrooms, which incurred a cost of approximately $20,000 over the past few years. Administrators consulted with the MCHS Student Council for student input and communicated the change to all students the previous school year. Vandalism included tearing dispensers off walls, clogging toilets with entire rolls of toilet paper, and leaving defecation on top of rolls on the floor. The district is now closely monitoring restrooms to create a safer and more functional learning environment. North Murray High School reportedly took similar action in response to restroom vandalism last year by removing toilet paper dispensers from stalls.
