Hendry County to Enforce Clear Backpacks in Schools

The Hendry County School District announced on Facebook this week that students will need a clear or see-through mesh backpack for the 2018-2019 school year.

Earlier this year, students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High were required to carry around new see-through backpacks. Some students ended up using this backpacks to protest — writing political messages on the inside to be displayed.

Amazon, J.C. Penney, Walmart, and other stores currently offer mesh and clear backpacks.

After some searching, HelloSWFL found mesh and clear backpacks on Amazon from nine to 50 dollars.

Target has a mesh backpack online for around $37. At Walmart, they range from nine to 25 dollars.
