Lee prohibit backpacks, large bags at high school sports events
Posted on 08/30/2018
Prohibited Items

In order to increase the safety of our students, staff and guests at athletic and arts events, the School District of Lee County will no longer allow backpacks and other large bags into stadiums, gymnasiums and theaters.

The District is taking this proactive approach in light of recent violence at high school football games in other parts of the state.

Prohibited items include but are not limited to:

ü Book bags, backpacks, duffel bags or large purses
ü Any item that could be used as a missile
ü Cans/Bottles
ü Coolers
ü Fireworks
ü Horns/Lasers

Any type of weapon on school property is already prohibited under board policy. All guests attending events may be subject to a search. 

These changes implement policies similar to what the NCAA, professional sports teams, large arenas and theaters require of their guests.  

We have shared this information with our law enforcement partners and are meeting with them next week for further discussions.  Right now this process will be implemented at the high school level, but part of next week’s conversation is about implementation at the middle and elementary levels.

We have also shared the information with parents through email and phone calls. It is posted to our District Facebook page and will also appear on the website
