In an effort to improve the safety measures currently in place, the district safety and security committee for Cypress Fairbanks I.S.D now requires all high school and middle school students to use clear backpacks beginning in the fall of 2018. Additionally, the maximum purse size permitted in grades 6-12 will be 6" by 9". Band and athletic bags, as well as drill and cheer team bags will still be permitted. These team bags MUST go directly to the team locker rooms to be stored in assigned lockers as soon as students arrive on campus. They may NOT be carried on campus from classroom to classroom.
