The clear backpack initiative was one of many measures put into place after 17 students and staff members were gunned down at the Florida high school in February, but students are expressing their disappointment in the school district.
Students will be allowed to bring large sports equipment or band instruments in non-clear bags or cases, but they should expect to have the bags searched, Runcie said. They calculated the $1.05 amount by dividing the total amount of money his campaign received from the NRA by the number of students in the state.
While the Trump Administration suggests arming teachers as a solution to gun violence following the Parkland shooting, the persistence of these students is what makes them stand out from the survivors of the other 18 school shootings so far this year. Some schools already have more cops on campus, and dozens are now armed with AR-15 rifles. "We shouldn't need to worry about our safety and our security while we are at school".
MSD student Delaney Tarr tagged Senator Marco Rubio in a tweet that showed her backpack.
"There is nothing about this skinhead lesbian that impresses me and there is nothing that she has to say unless you're a frothing at the mouth moonbat", Gibson wrote in a tweet, which was later deleted, according to the Washington Post.More news: Tom Watson becomes oldest victor of the Masters Par 3 Contest
Security barriers and bag check lines greeted the students Monday morning and they were given, by administrators, their newest mandatory accessories: a clear backpack and an identification badge they are required to wear at all times.
Junior Kai Koerber told CNN: 'It's hard, we all now have to learn how to deal with not only the loss of our friends, but now our right to privacy.
Tuesday was better, he said, although acts of defiance against the measures from students on campus have dominated much of the discussion on the ground and on social media.
The same goes for other "security" measures, such as metal detectors, wands, and school resource officers. A letter from Principal Ty Thompson sent to families on Friday said that step has not been taken yet.
In addition to making students feel like they're being increasingly policed in schools, the backpack strategy is faulty for another reason: The school has tried it once before, and it failed.
"It just kind of came to me", Kiffin said. "I feel so safe now".
