    I am creating my procedures list and I was wondering about bathroom policies for the students. I have read several things about them but I'm not sure what will work best. Could some of you tell me about your bathroom policies. Thank you

    Are you in a middle school or elementary school? When I subbed in middle school the kids carried planners and passes were written in the planners. They were only allowed a total of five passes a week.

    In elementary school, I just have the kids sign out in a notebook (I do this so I know when they were gone...this is helpful when problems in the bathroom turn up...I know who was there).

    my students are given 4 passes for the semester that they can use and when they are gone, they are gone. they also get a break at lunch to use the restroom.
