Alabama school removes bathroom stall doors to combat vaping

FLORENCE, Alabama – A high school in Lauderdale County, Alabama has taken the doors off some bathroom stalls.

Administrators say students at Wilson High School are vaping in the bathroom, according to WAFF.

The move came after a student was found passed out in a stall after vaping.

Principal Gary Horton told WAFF every day one of the students will sneak off to a bathroom to vape.

Some parents are reportedly not too happy with how the school is handling this, with one parent calling it “a little excessive.” Another parent said, “I don’t like it. They take their only private place in the school that they can do their business.”

A better solution, they said, would be to have an adult in the hallway or bathroom, monitoring things.

Principal Horton told WAFF the door removal may be temporary as they come up with other solutions.
