'Hoodies' hot topic at Woodrow Wilson
New policy receives mixed feedback from parents, students
When Woodrow Wilson Elementary principal Nancy Van Wyk instituted a new policy banning hooded sweatshirts or “hoodies” from classrooms this week, many parents and students misunderstood the intent behind the new policy.
In a letter that was both emailed and sent home to parents Tuesday, Van Wyk explained why the school implemented the new policy.
“One easy step we are going to take at WW, to eliminate classroom distraction, is to have students leave 'hoodies' in their lockers,” she wrote. “It's been too convenient for students to pass cigarettes and hide cell phones in them.”
