Clear Backpacks

This policy only applies to ninth through 12th graders and students in Non-Traditional Program North, South and Middle. At present, clear backpacks are optional for sixth- through eighth-graders. PGCPS will evaluate the policy for middle school grades at the end of first semester and communicate any modifications prior to the end of Winter Break. Mesh alternatives are not allowed. The school system is working with community partners to assist high school students in need.
