In keeping with other area venues’ safety practices, Charlottesville High School maintains a clear bag procedure at all school-sponsored ticketed events. This impacts events at locations such as Theodose Stadium, the Martin Luther King Performing Arts Center, the Black Box Theatre, and both gymnasiums.
Across the country, clear bag policies are being implemented as a way of keeping fans and attendees safer, while also expediting entry into events. It will limit the type of bags that spectators or audience members bring into ticketed events, with some exceptions for medical or childcare needs. Event staff, with the support of school administrators, will implement this procedure at event entrances.
Clear bags that allow all contents to be seen will be permitted. There are no limits on bag size or style as long as it is a clear, see-through container. Unless the bag is clear, spectators cannot bring bags such as the following: backpacks, camera bags, cinch bags, purses, fanny packs, coolers, and computer bags.
We will post signage in parking areas as a reminder since other types of bags will need to be returned to the car or another safe location during the event.
Students, game officials, media, and other professionals who are participating in the ticketed event will be permitted to take their equipment bags and other personal bags into the locker room or other designated spaces.
Thanks for your support as we work to keep our students, staff, families, and community as safe as possible. “Clearly,” your safety is important to us! Go Black Knights!
