I can think of plenty of explanations, all of them very, very sick.
The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board has introduced stricter cleaning rules after six students sought medical help for chemical burns caused by cleaning materials used on the seat of a toilet in a bathroom at a public school.
Five young girls told staff at east Ottawa’s Avalon Public School that they had sunburn-like rashes on their thighs and buttocks after using the same bathroom on Friday.
Another boy complained of burns to his elbows.
Neil Yorke-Slader, superintendent of instruction for the OCDSB’s east-end schools, said cleaning staff hadn’t fully wiped the chemicals they used off the toilet seats.
