Grandview has been having some issues in the bathrooms, the academic halls, the cafeteria, outside, just about any open area where students make their way through Grandview, it’s all littered with trash.

It has now been a full quarter since school has started, and the amount of trash seen in one dumpster after just four class periods is brutal.

Principal Dr. Roberts doesn’t like how the school is looking, and she acknowledges that we need more support with sanitation.

“It is bad, and it’s not just us, so I can tell you that. So any help we can get. We’ve asked teachers to help us. Any help we can get from students is great,”  said Dr. Roberts.

Grandview provides trash cans in the cafeteria and lower commons outside the cafeteria. They can also be found near the outside tables, and trees to the left of the school.

“Do I like it? No, I hate when this building is dirty and disgusting, and you (Students) should not have to experience that. The problem is manpower,” said Dr. Roberts.

“To me, it looks like there are lots of trash cans all over the school, and plenty of opportunities to throw away trash,” said freshman, Josie Leon.

Although many trash cans are provided, people still seem to not use them, which leaves a dirty school. Freshman, Marissa Ieager, has witnessed it.

“I’ve seen like, papers and some stuff in the hallways, and then definitely in the bathroom there’s always stuff,” said Ieager, “I think they should encourage students more to help out, like help cleaning.”

“Do I like it? No, I hate when this building is dirty and disgusting, and you (Students) should not have to experience that. The problem is manpower,” said Dr. Roberts.

The school seems filthy and there is the lack of sanitation. So, what do you think of the schools sanitation situation? Are you doing anything to help?
