Stafford MSD

Stafford MSD has banned backpacks at athletic events and has instituted several other new measures after a series of fights during the district’s homecoming last weekend, according to a news release.

District administrators did not elaborate on the fights, but said the new policies were meant to curb such issues in the future, according to the release.

From now on, no one can bring backpacks to any athletic events, student athletes must purchase a ticket and can’t use an athletic pass, students in the eighth grade and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to a varsity event and high school students must present their ID badges to enter an event, according to the release.
