GHS, please be advised that students can ONLY carry clear or mesh bookbags on campus and in school. The entire bookbag must be clear or mesh-- not partially clear or mesh. Clutch purses (that are not clear) are allowed. If you have equipment for extracurricular activities that are carried in a bag, please see your activity advisor for further direction. Thank you for helping to ensure safety at GHS. Examples of appropriate bags are below.
Please be advised that for the 2022-2023 school year, all GSCS middle and high schools will implement a clear bookbag policy. All middle school student bookbags must be transparent. The entire bookbag should be clear plastic or see-through mesh that allows for the contents inside the bookbag to be known. Small purses (that are not clear) are allowed but should be smaller than 1 ft. by 1 ft. Lunch boxes that are not clear are allowed but should only be used to transport lunch. If students have equipment for extracurricular activities that must be carried in a bag, they should see their activity advisor for further direction. Thank you for helping to ensure safety at our schools.
This clear bookbag policy is a proactive measure to serve as a deterrent to discourage students from bringing inappropriate items into our school. This is not in response to a particular incident but is an effort to keep our school environment safe.
