Clear backpack policy starts Tuesday at Smylie Wilson

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK -

When classes resume Tuesday, students at Smylie Wilson Middle School will be required to use clear backpacks and wear school-issued jackets.

The policy change comes after two firearms and a pellet gun were confiscated from students last semester. 

No other bags or outer wear will be allowed. The school will also increase security during class hours.

Lubbock ISD has a no-tolerance policy when dealing with firearms on school property. It urges parents to discuss the importance of students reporting anything suspicious they may see. Students caught with a gun could face severe consequences from the school and the legal system.
