CUSD Clear Bag Policy

CUSD Clear Bag Policy

On Aug. 23, 2021, there was an email sent out to all Hamilton High students and parents regarding a new clear bag policy. 

During all athletic events, people will not be allowed to have bags with them unless they are clear. These clear bags can be purchased at the bookstore. Any fans that come are allowed to bring one clear bag with them. People may be allowed to bring small bags with life necessity items but they will be checked before the event starts. This measure has been put into place to ensure the protection of the people at sporting events but to also make the place less crowded. 

If a person brings a backpack to a sporting event, they will be told to keep the bag in their vehicles. People will be allowed to bring jackets and blankets, but if they are folded, they will be opened and inspected before entering the sporting event. People can also carry items in their pockets instead of bringing a clear bag. Ultimately, fans are not allowed to bring bags due to safety reasons, but they can have clear bags and small purses.
