Important: New Bag Policy effective Aug. 21

Effective August 21, 2023


The safety, security, and well-being of everyone within the Millbrook community, as well as guests and visitors to the school, remains a top priority to school officials.


The intent of this new bag policy for ALL Millbrook athletic events, as well as other individually identified school events during the course of the year, is to promote a safe environment by enhancing security. It emerged from the school’s continuous evaluation of its security protocols and procedures, in collaboration with WCPSS’s Security Department, the Raleigh Police Department, and the Wake County Sheriff’s Office. 


Millbrook Magnet High requests attendees bring NO bag into an athletic event on our campus. The following items will be permitted, but permitted items are subject to inspection before entry will be allowed:


Permitted items

  • One clear bag no larger than 12" x 15" x 3."
  • In addition, event attendees may carry a small, clear clutch bag or wristlet no larger than 6" x 8" x 1".
  • Bags containing medically necessary items for that attendee's assistance (e.g., an oxygen tank).
  • Diaper bags.


In addition, each attendee is permitted to bring loose items, including:

  • Coat
  • Blanket
  • Seat cushions not exceeding 18 inches wide with no pockets, zippers, or concealable areas.
  • iPad or other mobile devices.
  • Camera (no camera bag).
  • Binoculars (no case or bag).
  • Soft baby carriers or slings are preferred to rigid-frame carriers or strollers. 


Items NOT permitted

  • No other bags are permitted, including but not limited to:
  • Backpacks
  • Fanny packs
  • Belt bags
  • Purses
  • String bags
  • Messenger bags
  • Camera bags
  • Briefcases
  • Roll bags
  • Binocular cases
  • Duffle bags


There are no provisions for leaving prohibited items at gates or doors. Neither Millbrook Magnet High School, nor any staff member, is responsible for items left behind, lost, stolen, or damaged.
