Our new principal this year recently banned water bottles at the school, but he did it without letting the parents know. He just wanted the teachers to enforce this new rule starting Jan. 1st. (teachers did not agree, however he is our boss). At the last board of ed meeting angry parents came forward. I do realize that it is common to have water bottles banned, but I'm just wondering how many people actually work at a school where they are banned. Also, are you in an elementary, middle, or high school? Our school is so incredibly hot and the air is dry that it is impossible for me to go throughout the day without a bottle of water at my desk.
