Security Enhancement: No backpacks allowed at CCPS athletic events

August 29, 2018


In our continuing efforts to add layers of security to our school campuses, backpacks, cinch bags, and other large bags are no longer permitted inside CCPS sporting venues, including high school stadiums and gymnasiums. An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection. This security enhancement is effective immediately and will impact this week’s games.

In addition, we have increased security patrols at our upcoming games and competitions. Thank you for your understanding and continued support to help keep our students, staff, and community safe.
