Backpack Awareness Day 2017

  • Wed, September 20, 2017
  • 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM
  • E.L. Haynes Public Charter School


  • Assist students across the country learn tips and tricks to avoid the pain and injury that can come from heavy backpacks and bags. Students, parents, educators, school administrators, and community members will learn safety tips to stay protected from back pain throughout life. You have the chance to help by educating people of all ages about proper bag usage. Teach others how to properly choose, pack, lift, and carry various types of bags—including backpacks, purses, briefcases, and suitcases.
DCOTA is looking for volunteers for our Backpack Awareness Day event!

We will be passing out fliers to educate the community about proper bag usage, holding backpack weigh-ins, and adjusting students' backpacks as they arrive to school.
