My daughter has a medical condition where she has to use the bathroom with very little warning sometimes and if she holds she gets infections. She had the same band teacher, the same band room last year. So conditions were fine. This 7th grade year her teacher made her wait and ask 4 times to use the bathroom which made my daughter pee herself. I sent an email asking why the teacher did not let her go, and a second telling her my daughter now has an infection due to making her wait. My daughter was thrown out of the class for this, teacher claimed she was intimidated by threatening emails from parent. Even though my daughter who is an A student ranked #1 in her class, did absolutely nothing wrong. I want my child to be able to return to band. Music is her life, and even though this teacher has done this, my daughter is acting with maturity and still wants to play her flute! This is not a matter of using the bathroom to get out of class, she has a hyperactive bladder, which is small and no tone, that contracts and voids without much warning. She goes from nothing to desperate in 1 minute and is unable to hold. If she does hold as long as she can she gets sick with an infection, which can back up to her kidneys. It is an absolute outrage that ANY child is denied or delayed using the bathroom.
