Let them go!

Yes, I let them go.

If I'm in the middle of telling them something super important I'll ask them to wait two minutes.

If someone seems to be abusing the privilege, they might need special rules of their own (or a visit to the doctor) but I've rarely had that problem.

I think not letting them go at all is too harsh, and could cause unnecessary discomfort or humiliation if someone wets themselves. I'm not going to take that risk.

I do teach little ones though. Perhaps older children would benefit from slightly different expectations. I still wouldn't make it a blanket no, however.
