Stick to your procedure! I have second grade, same rule. One Kid at a time, to prevent them from playing in the bathroom. I also say they have a two minute time limit. I don't actually time them, but they know to hurry up. If I have to go looking for you, it's gonna cost you!

If that many kids are legitimately having to go to the bathroom, maybe you need to add another whole class bathroom time. I find that students usually think of going to the bathroom when they hear another kid ask, so my general policy is that only the first kid to ask goes. The others are all copy cats, and I put them off by saying something like, "Wait til we finish this workbook page," or whatever. Usually they forget. If they really need to go, they will ask again, and then I'm more likely to believe them.
