Following in line with actions taken by several area school districts, Dripping Springs ISD in 2019 will enact a clear bag policy at all varsity football games.
The policy limits the size and type of bags fans will be allowed to enter the stadium with, all in the name of enhancing safety and security. Districts such as Hays CISD, San Marcos CISD, Austin ISD, Lake Travis ISD and Eanes ISD have enacted similar clear bag policies in recent years.
All bags are subject to inspection prior to entry. Guests attempting to enter the stadium with nonconforming bags will be asked to return the items to their vehicles.
Exceptions will be made for medically necessary items and credentialed news media or photographer equipment bags. Those individuals should check in at the pass gate table upon arrival, which is located at both the home side entrance and the north entrance gates).
In addition, members of student groups involved with the event are permitted to enter with equipment bags when entering with their team or group, in uniform, and with the director or coach.
Dripping Springs’ home opener is Sept. 6, against Hays High.
