Announcements: Clear/Mesh Backpack Rule Still in Place as SCCPSS Students Head Back to School; Unstructured Break Time Policy Remains Unchanged

Title

Clear/Mesh Backpack Rule Still in Place as SCCPSS Students Head Back to School; Unstructured Break Time Policy Remains Unchanged 

Body

As Savannah-Chatham County Public School students head back to class on Thursday, there are several points our families should keep in mind. 

 

First, there have been a few questions surrounding the clear/mesh backpack requirement.  Safety for students and staff remains a top priority for the district and new safety initiatives and equipment are being added in our schools.  Until all the safety equipment is in and fully operational and administrative training is completed, the requirement of clear and/or mesh backpacks still stands.  Our school leaders will continue to administer random administrative inspections of bags and/or other materials as prescribed by Campus Police and Academic Affairs.


Second, questions have been posed about a proposed revision to Unstructured Break Time brought forth during the July meeting of the Board of Education.  Principals have been reminded that the Unstructured Break Time policy has not changed. Schools are required to maintain evidence that unstructured break time is provided as the policy presently requires. The Wellness Committee will revisit the topic of Unstructured Break Time and documents submitted at the last board meeting in the near future.


Thank you for your support.  We look forward to seeing our students back at school on Thursday!
