County Public Schools continues to expand our security protocols and enhance
safety initiatives across the district. In our work to continuously
strengthen security, new screening procedures will be implemented for entry
into district athletic events.
security protocols are being put in place for the benefit of our students,
staff and all attendees, and to keep pace with evolving best practices at
public gatherings around the country.
The new protocols mean screening areas will be
set up outside stadium gates. Bags will be searched and those entering will be
screened using metal detectors. If necessary, additional screening may be
conducted. Clear bags will also be required at
athletic events. Each person is allowed one (1) clear plastic bag and one (1)
small clutch. Size requirements and exceptions are posted below.
security protocols will begin the weekend of August 30, 2019 at certain games
and will eventually be included at all District athletic events. We
appreciate your cooperation and continued support in our work to ensure
everyone has a safe and enjoyable time at district athletic events.
