SDOC Clear Bag Protocol
SDOC is continually reviewing safety and security measures. To enhance safety inside athletic venues, the district will implement a Clear Bag Protocol as part of the screening process to enter all athletic events for the 2022-2023 school year. A clear bag is easily searched, reduces faulty bag searches, and supports the Department of Homeland Security's "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign.
SPECTATORS WILL BE PERMITTED TO CARRY
ONE LARGE CLEAR BAG UP TO 12” X 12” X 6”
PLUS A SMALL CLUTCH PURSE up to 4.5" X 6.5"
PROHIBITED BAGS INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:
Purses - larger than a clutch
Tinted/printed pattern plastic bags
Please note the following:
A gallon-sized “ziploc-style” bag meets the clear bag requirement.
Folding chairs and blankets are allowed, but are subject to be searched.
Diapers & other baby supplies may be carried into the stadium but must be in a clear bag.
Items requiring refrigeration (medicine, infant formula/milk) are allowed in a small soft-side cooler. Coolers will be searched in the bag check area.
