It’s unfortunate that in today’s modern world, more and more schools are introducing clear backpack policies to promote additional safety and security for students and staff. We say unfortunate, because, sadly, the world is not as safe for our children as in days gone by, and with the terrible school tragedies of recent times, schools are being forced to re-examine their security procedures.
A clear backpack may not sound very exciting but they have actually become quite popular as a fashion accessory. A clear bag can be individualized to suit the personality of the child, they’re durable and strong, it’s quick and simple to find what you’re looking for in a clear backpack, and it’s much easier to be organized.
Plus there’s the cleaning issue. Traditional school bags are notoriously grubby, and over-packed. With a clear backpack it’s very simple to create a simple weekend routine of emptying out the backpack on a Friday afternoon, wiping it out with a soapy cloth and drying, then re-packing it ready for Monday morning. Voila! You have a clean and organized school backpack. How often can you say that now?
Privacy for Students
If you’re concerned about the invasion of your child’s privacy, don’t be, because surprisingly this isn’t an issue at all. Personal items can be placed in smaller opaque bags or folders within the clear bag, and these can be used for carrying money, toiletries, make-up etc. So your personal stuff stays personal.
The bonus with these clear bags is that they’re water-proof, so you don’t have to worry about the elements and all your precious stuff inside getting wet. Clear bags from The Clear Bag Store are made from very tough, durable PVC and they’re going to last for a long time. They’ll survive all the rough playing that school backpacks have to endure – being thrown around, kicked, pushed under lockers and chairs, dropped, and everything else in-between.
Another bonus with these clear backpacks is that you and/or your child can decorate the bag to your own individual style. Just remember you can’t cover the whole bag because that would defeat the purpose of using a clear bag, but you can certainly go to town on it with stickers, glitter, whatever your child likes to make it their own personal bag. What a great way to spend a wintery day indoors – decorating and personalizing your children’s school bags!
Clear Backpacks from The Clear Bag Store. It’s All About Security and Safety for Our Children
And now down to the real reason why clear bag policies are being implemented in schools, not to mention all the sporting facilities, businesses and organizations that have already implemented a clear bag policy – Security! It’s all about keeping our children safe, and what better way than having all students carry clear bags, where inspections can take place very quickly. With this new ramped-up security measure, smuggling drugs or weapons into schools should become a thing of the past.
Incidentally, this is a great relief for parents too, because if you’re having concerns of our own regarding what your children are getting up to, now you can check your own children’s bags before and after they leave your home
Using clear backpacks for security in schools is such a simple step, but it’s a great one, because it keeps all students the same, and it will help enormously in keeping our students safe while away from home.
