BCSD to expand CLEAR BAG OR NO BAG entry procedure to all winter varsity sporting events
Berkeley County School District (BCSD) leaders will expand implementation of the “Clear Bag or No Bag” entry procedure to all winter varsity sporting events to take effect at the beginning of the regular season. This proactive measure is part of an on-going safety initiative by the BCSD Safety and Security Office to continue to improve and advance district safety and security measures. This entry procedure will also be in effect for all winter junior varsity sporting events that take place on the same day and at the same location as a varsity sporting event as these competitions typically draw a larger crowd.
