Clear Bag Policy

In an effort to provide a safer environment and improve security, El Dorado School District has implemented a Clear Bag Policy that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums, gymnasiums, and other athletic fields.* Prohibited items include but are not limited to purses larger than a 4.5" x 6.5” clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, grocery bags, cinch bags, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags, or any bag larger than the permissible size.

Bags that are permitted included: 

  • Tote bags that are clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12”

  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags

  • Small clutch bags with or without a handle or strap, no larger than 4.5” x 6.5” (approximately the size of a hand)

Bags not permitted: 

  • Backpacks, printed plastic bags, fanny packs, purses, reusable grocery totes, mesh or straw bags, duffle bags, large totes, and camera or binocular cases. 

  • Diaper bags are not allowed. Items normally carried in a diaper bag must be put into a clear plastic bag for venue entry. 

In the near future, metal detector screening and a search of all items being carried in may take place at all ESD Athletic Venues. There are no provisions available to store or safeguard any prohibited bags. ESD is not responsible for lost or stolen items. 

*This policy applies to athletic events only. An exception will be made for credentialed media and medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate by the respective gate supervisor.
