How to Get Students to Wash Their Hands Using a Bathroom Pass

You don't need to use a printable bathroom pass. This creative bathroom pass idea will let teachers know which students are out of the classroom and will solve the problem of kids who don't wash their hands after using the bathroom.

If you work at a school that requires the students use a bathroom pass then I think you will find this "clever idea" to be genius!" 

Because if you think about it you'll quickly realize that a bathroom pass is truly one of the yickiest things that lurks in an elementary school.

Are there hooks to hang them on in the bathroom? Will every kid wash his hands before carrying it back to class? No! 

Like I said, this is genius!

Even if you aren't required to have the students carry a pass in the hall, I would suggest having them place one of these on their desk to signal that they are out of the classroom.
