Hays CISD Clear Bag Requirement

  • Hays CISD values your safety and the safety of guests at events. To provide a more secure environment and to expedite entry into Shelton Stadium, the district has implemented a clear bag requirement, limiting the size and types of bags allowed at the stadium during games and events. This new requirement stemmed from recommendations made by the district’s safety and security committee. Guests attempting to enter a venue with nonconforming bags will be asked to return the items to their vehicles.
