HEIDELBERG, Miss. (WDAM) - Beginning April 11, schools in the East Jasper School District will allow only clear backpacks on campuses and buses.
Material can be plastic, PVC or vinyl.
The backpacks’ contents must be visible and not covered by clothes or smaller bags.
The district shared the new guidelines Thursday night in a Facebook post.
The announcement comes after a gun was found at William J. Berry Elementary School within the past two weeks.
