As part of Mesquite ISD’s ongoing efforts to enhance safety for students and staff members, a clear bag policy will be in effect when the 2023-24 school year begins. Only clear backpacks, purses and totes will be allowed for students on campus. All items inside a student backpack, purse or tote must be visible; however, students may carry a small nonclear bag to hold personal items, such as money and hygiene products.

Mesquite ISD will provide one clear backpack free of charge to any student who requests one. Elementary students may pick up a free clear backpack at their campus on School Supply Drop-Off Night (Aug. 3) or the first day of school. Middle and high school students may pick up their free backpacks on the first day of school. (Please note clear backpacks will not be distributed at the annual Mesquite ISD Back to School Fair.)
