- Why did Kaufman ISD adopt the policy?
- Do I have to put everything I’m carrying into the permissible bags?
- What about students with backpacks?
- Can fans carry cameras, binoculars, or smart phones separately from what they put in a clear bag?
- What about items needed for babies/children?
- If I have special medical equipment I need to have with me at all times, where do I put that?
- What about bringing blankets in cold weather?
- What happens if I show up at the gate with a bag that is not permitted?
