Jackson Public Schools will implement clear bag procedures at sporting events beginning January 6, 2020. The guidelines limit the size and type of bags that may be brought into athletic facilities to provide a safer environment for the public.

Fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container through stadium gates/venue entries:

  • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12 inches x 6 inches x 12 inches.
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
  • Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap, can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bag options.

Exceptions will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate.

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.

For more information, please contact the JPS Athletics Department at (601) 960-8825.
