Clear Bag Policy

This year, Lancaster County School District (LCSD) will implement a clear bag policy for all school events. These events include athletics (See the attached policy for approved bags). In an effort to ensure the safety of everyone attending the athletic events, LCSD may also have metal detectors in use at the events.

Please make certain to not be in possession of mace, pepper spray, any type of pocket knife, or other types of perceived weapons on the premises of LCSD. If a student brings any of these items on the premises of LCSD, he/she will be disciplined according to the LCSD disciplinary policy.
