ACPS Clear Plastic Bag Policy

Panthers, please take a moment to read this important message from ACPS:
To promote the safety of everyone attending ACPS high school home football games, spectators at those games are permitted to bring one clear bag into school stadiums and Citizens Field. This requirement will be in effect during this week’s football games and beyond. It will likely be extended to other sports, venues and grade levels in the near future.
Permissible bags include clear plastic, vinyl or PVC totes no larger than 12” x 12” x 6” and clear plastic resealable bags no larger than a gallon size. Items related to a medical condition are also permitted. (A person with a medical item may also bring one additional clear bag.) See the flier below for more information.
All individuals and permitted bags are subject to search at any time. Spectators will be asked to return any prohibited items to their vehicles before entering a stadium. Weapons of any kind are NOT allowed in bags, on persons, or in vehicles parked on district property or at school-sponsored events.
Prohibited items include but are not limited to: purses, backpacks, coolers, fanny packs, camera bags, computer cases, diaper bags, and binocular cases. Again, medical items are permitted, but may be subject to search.
This policy aligns with the District's commitment to maintaining a safe and secure environment for everyone. We appreciate your support.
