Students at Trenton Central High School West say something stinks and they're fed up. So far, 157 students have signed a petition asking that school administrators to provide essential hygiene supplies and to make repairs in the girls' and boys' bathrooms.

The petition asks that toilet paper, towels and soap be provided - something students say is frequently lacking. They also want broken toilet stall doors repaired and adequate trash receptacles for sanitary napkins.

Finally, the students say they want clean drinking water instead of the hot, brown fluid gushing from hall fountains.

School officials say they will investigate the complaints and address the allegations if they prove true.
