Clear Policy Enforced at Extra-curricular Events
The Kershaw County School District began implementing clear bag procedures on December 1, 2019 for middle and high school extracurricular activities as an added safety measure.
Under the guidelines, persons can use clear tote bags no bigger than 12x6x12 inches or a clear plastic bag no larger than a gallon size to carry items into extracurricular activities. Keys, wallets, phones, credit cards and cash may be carried in a pocket or in hand. Medically necessary items will be able to be brought in after proper inspection at the gates.
Visitors can also bring seat cushions that do not have pockets, zippered pockets, compartments or covers. Umbrellas and clear rain ponchos are also acceptable as well as small clutches that are no larger than 4.5 x 6.5 inches.
