An elementary school in Lebanon, Ore., has done away with a policy that required kids to pay to potty.

Some parents said teachers at Cascades Elementary School were punishing their children for needing to use the restroom outside of their scheduled bathroom breaks.

Melissa Dalebout told ABC News’ Portland affiliate KATU that her first-grade, daughter, Lily, had an accident at school while trying to hold in her urine.
