New restrooms at Cordova High cuts traveling time to facilities

Cordova High has increased the number of rest rooms for the campus.

With additional portable classrooms increasing faculty concerns about bathroom access, Cordova High School has started construction of new restrooms on campus.

 Construction of the new bathrooms started in December. They are being built with funds approved by the previous administration, said CHS principal Amy Strawn.

With the establishment of new portables in G-wing, there was a need to provide staff with more facilities,” Strawn said. “Additionally, the F-wing does not have a staff restroom.”

The new bathrooms will mean more class time for teachers, according to Strawn.

“By providing staff more restrooms, we are maximizing class time, and that is a positive,” she said.

According to one of the teachers in Cordova’s G-Wing, Stephanie Poland, the new bathrooms will be helpful for faculty members.

“Since there are so many teachers, and there are only two staff bathrooms currently in the G-Wing that serve both G and F wings, I think it is a good expenditure to provide more bathrooms because we have all the portables at the back of the G-wing as well,” Poland said. “From a teacher perspective, I do appreciate that they put the funding in for the bathrooms.” 

CHS senior Brian Nguyen said the construction of the new bathrooms will have a small impact, but still be beneficial for the teachers.

“Sure, it is only six stalls,” Nguyen said. “But it would alleviate some traffic from other bathrooms and shorten bathroom trips in the G-wing portables.” 

He also said it will help improve access when other bathrooms are temporarily closed.

“The bathrooms would also be successful if other bathrooms are closed down for maintenance or any other reason,” Nguyen said.
