    Officials at a San Francisco school have removed first-graders' restroom signs, making them gender neutral.

    Miraloma Elementary School Principal Sam Bass says there are roughly eight first-graders who don't fit gender norms. The students range from tomboys to transgender, he said.

    Bass plans to make the restrooms for older students gender-neutral as well.
