Several vending machines that sold bottled water, juices and other items have been removed from Binghamton High School.

Binghamton City School District superintendent Marion Martinez says she was told that the machines had become a “big distraction.”

High school administrators said there had been problems getting students away from vending machines so they could show up for class on time.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Martinez said all of the vending machines were removed on Friday.

The superintendent said no date has been set for returning the machines. She said she didn’t know whether the move might be made permanent.

Martinez said if the machines are posing “a distraction to the educational environment, we’re not going to have it.”

Martinez said between eight and ten machines used by students were taken out of the high school. Machines for faculty and staff remain in place.
