BRADENTON - The School District of Manatee County is notifying parents and residents that no large bags will be permitted into high school sporting events unless they are transparent.

Fans will be permitted one large clear bag, plus a small clutch-type handbag.
The large clear bag must be no larger than 12" x 6" x 12" and made of clear material that may be easily searched.

A gallon-sized Ziploc bag is a readily available clear bag that meets these requirements.

The small clutch-type handbag can be used to carry personal items and will be subject to search by security officials or law enforcement.
