Clear Bag Procedures


As the fall sports season kicks off, the Darlington County School District (DCSD) is reminding all fans of the district’s clear bag procedures for football and basketball games. The clear bag program was implemented in 2020 to help provide a safe and secure environment for fans and athletes. 
Any bag brought into the stadium or gymnasium must be completely clear and no larger than 12” x 6” x 12”. One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags work well. In addition to the clear bags, small clutch bags less than 4.5” x 6.5” (approximately the size of a hand), medically necessary items (these will be inspected at the entrance), and diaper bags (with the infant/toddler present and after proper inspection at the gate) will also be permitted. Prohibited items include but are not limited to purses larger than a clutch, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, drawstring bags, computer bags, or camera bags.
Fans with prohibited bags will not be permitted to enter the stadium or gymnasium. The practice allows school staff to be more efficient and effective in moving guests through security checkpoints and checking approved bags that are brought into the venue.
