With school threats becoming more common, many schools Nationwide such as Lexington City Schools have implemented a clear bag policy. The schools are mandating clear backpacks made of clear plastic or vinyl. Logos cannot obstruct the content view and bags must be clear. They join countless other school districts around the country, that are also requiring their students to use clear backpacks in an attempt to make it harder for students to sneak weapons or contraband into the classroom. Transparent backpacks make it easier for school officials to see what’s inside each bag and helps prevent students from concealing weapons.
According to their website "Backpack Requirements: Students are required to carry backpacks made of clear plastic, vinyl, or similar transparent materials. Backpacks with colored elements, stripes, colored straps, mesh pockets, or leather reinforced corners are allowed as long as they do not obstruct visibility."
These clear book bag requirements are intended to make schools safer and security checks more fluid. If your child’s school has a clear bag policy, make sure to get specific information as to the exact size allowed.
The clear bag requirements are not uncommon in stadiums and concert venues. Most large-scale events have implemented similar clear bag guidelines in order to provide a safer environment and expedite entry for fans.
