Clear Backpacks Required in School Following Shooting Incident

Students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will now be required to use clear backpacks following the mass shooting that claimed 17 lives in February of 2018.

The backpacks will be provided to students at no cost, along with ID badges that they will be required to wear at all times. Administrators are also considering installing permanent metal detectors in an effort to keep weapons out of the school.
