Cougar Catnip: Why are the portable restrooms locked during break and lunch?


Alejandro Hernandez

It’s break, maybe lunch. Instead of using the restroom during class time, I decide to use it during my free time like a “good student.” That’s what I have been told for practically my entire life. With the fact that students are not allowed to use the restroom during the first and last 10 minutes of class, using the restroom outside of class time is more enticing. Somehow, Ventura High School prefers minor deterrence for vaping to students’ basic needs. I understand that there are other restrooms open, but I should be allowed to use the restroom at the portables.
