THREE LAKES, Wis. (AP) - A school district in northern Wisconsin has refurbished an old photography dark room into a place where the basic needs of its students are met.

Teachers at the Three Lakes School District raised money to furnish the room with a washer and dryer to help students who might not have access to one at home.

WJFW-TV reports special education teacher Nicole Lewis makes sure the room is stocked with personal essentials such as shampoo, soap, deodorant, and toothbrushes.

“Not many students, or adults for that matter are able to concentrate and learn if those basic needs aren’t met,” said Lewis. “I think it’s one of those things that’s a necessity in a school.”

The room is also stocked with spare clothing.
