Backpacks and Large Bags Not Allowed at District Athletic Events

With football games back under the lights, we want to remind our fans of the enhanced security measures that are still in place at all games and other events this school year.

In order to increase the safety of our students, staff and guests at athletic and arts events, the School District of Lee County does not allow backpacks and other large bags into stadiums, gymnasiums and theaters.

Prohibited items include but are not limited to:

  • Book bags, backpacks, duffel bags or large purses
  • Any item that could be used as a missile
  • Cans/Bottles
  • Coolers
  • Fireworks
  • 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 ask for your patience as you enter school games and events for the safety of our athletes, performers, employees and spectators.

Thank you.
