(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Final exams are near and LRHS administrators remind students not to bring their backpacks on the early release days of final exam week May 26-30.
LRHS discipline dean Sarah Wonderling said the policy is designed to reduce disruptions.
“We are banning backpacks in order to block the students that try to bring in restricted items during the last few days of school,” she said. “Backpacks are not needed to take final exams, and students should only need a pencil, eraser, and maybe a calculator to take them.”
