CHATTANOOGA, TN (WTVC/CNN) — A Tennessee high school is apologizing after an administrator had the bathroom mirrors painted over because so many students were late to class.
Students and parents from Central High School in Chattanooga, Tenn., complained after the mirrors in the school’s bathrooms were painted over so they couldn’t be used. On Friday, the principal left a school-wide voicemail and sent an email, saying the paint had been removed.
The Hamilton County School District says an administrator at the high school told a worker to paint the mirrors. The district is not identifying who that administrator or staff member is.
The district says the school took such measures because students spend too much time in the bathroom rather than in class.
