Back to school could look a lot different in backpacks.
La Crosse Central High School is implementing a clear backpack policy when school begins in early September. Any backpacks that are not clear will have to be left in lockers for the entire school day. Students will be able to carry clear or mesh backpacks to classrooms throughout the day or can carry their books in their hands. The school district says the policy is meant to ensure student safety and to prevent students from carrying heavy backpacks around all day.
