At a third school, one staff member commented: “There are not enough staff restrooms and they are too far from the gym. I only have a couple of minutes usually to walk halfway down the length of the building to get to a staff restroom and since there are only 2 toilets in that location they can be occupied when I need to quickly use the restroom and get to my next class. It creates a lot of anxiety! I hate to make my classes/teachers wait for me.”
