    •          Each middle and high school will have uniformed law enforcement on site to assist with security at all major sporting events, including enhanced security before, during, and after the event. Law enforcement and/or school staff will regularly monitor hallways, common areas, parking lots and outdoor areas. Law enforcement will take an overt and active role in securing the building exterior and parking areas as patrons and students exit the venue.

    •          School staff will conduct a visual search of all bags and jackets/coats prior to entry. These screening protocols will increase the amount of time needed to enter major school sporting events, and students and families are asked to leave bags, backpacks and additional items at home, if possible. Per South Carolina Code 16-23-420, concealed weapons permits ARE NOT honored on school campuses.

    •          Metal Detectors will be available, visible and used by school staff prior to entry, as deemed necessary.

    Thank you so much for your cooperation and your continued support of Aiken County Public Schools and all Aiken County student-athletes.
