Plans for Distribution of Clear Backpacks for CMS Students Have Been Scrapped, at Least for Now

Queen City News is reporting that Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is scrapping plans to use mandatory clear backpacks for local high school students. According to CMS, the 46,000 clear backpacks the school system purchased for high school students were to be distributed today. CMS said the distribution has been canceled due to a warning label on the backpacks that the materials and/or chemicals used to make them are linked to cancer.
