Toledo Public Schools is committed to a student-centered learning environment in which the safety of all students and staff members is the utmost priority.
In an effort to add another layer of safety, there will be a change to procedure when students return to class on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. Backpacks, book bags and similar items will NOT be allowed to be carried in the district’s high schools during the school day.
Students will be permitted to bring book bags and backpacks into their school buildings but they MUST be placed in a locker until the end of the day. This is a national best practice to increase safety.
