Yes, we understand that backpacks may be a safety hazard with guns being an issue, and that the vaping epidemic has gone up dramatically in the past few years, but in the long run this doesn’t help students trying to be productive learners/workers in school. 

Me being only a sophomore, in my freshman year my backpack helped me so much to carry around from class to class. Because, I had no idea what I needed for each class, and I never forgot anything. Without backpacks this increases the chances of students forgetting essential materials for their classes. Also, with only 5 minutes between each class, it makes it hard for this coming year for students to be able to get to class on time. Because they have to run to their locker from their first class, figure out what they need, then head to their next class. And in some cases for students this might be walking from gym, to their locker by the tech ed rooms, to math. Which has the potential for taking over 5 minutes if they need to use the restroom or something in between. 

Us as students understand the school board’s reasoning behind banning backpacks, but maybe some student input might help change the final decision. I’m sure most students would even be okay with clear or mesh backpacks. We as students just need some way to carry around all our materials from class to class as it makes school so much easier.
