Locked out from the bathroom

Signs that Mr. Arnold left outside his door during the lockout.

When Fremont decided to lock all their doors due to the safety of their students, they didn’t realize that they weren’t going to be able to visit a bathroom anytime soon. From slipping signs under doors, to peeing in bottles, when Fremont’s third period classes were faced with the problem of no bathrooms, they worked with what they had.

“I felt like the time went by even slower because of [the lockdown],” said Grace Youngberg, a sophomore who had to wait much longer to visit the bathroom. “I didn’t know how long it would be until we would get out, so that made things even worse. Then all the bathrooms were locked so it wasn’t just waiting until we were let out of the classroom. It was not fun!”

Because it was a lockdown, students weren’t allowed to run to a bathroom because of safety precautions. This required that some students hold “it” for up to four hours while students were being evacuated.

“I had to go since class started and could not leave, and so I finally caved in and just went in the corner, so it was the best feeling ever,” said Jake Pendergast, a senior at Fremont.

Another student who had to use the classroom as a restroom said, “It was kind of weird to pee in a garbage can in the lockdown, but when you got to go, you got to go.”
