Why can’t we carry our backpacks in HSW? I have to run back and forth to my locker all day, or carry 5 binders.

A.  Following several instances of students and staff sustaining injuries after accidentally being hit by students’ backpacks while moving about High School West’s narrow hallways between class periods, the joint 9th Grade and Environment Committees decided in the interest of safety not to allow students to wear/carry their backpacks in High School West during the school day.
