NORFOLK, Va. – A little confusion on if hoodies are allowed at Norfolk Public Schools has been cleared up.

In an email, the school district said that hoodies are not banned, but students and parents are aware that wearing the hood indoors violates the NPS Student Attire policy.

Some parents of students at Norview High School had grown concerned with rumors regarding the school not allowing students to wear hoodies past April 16.

The same email said that Norview reminded students of the dress code as a whole. There had been an increase in violations, which the district says is a common occurrence when “the weather fluctuates as is often the case in Hampton Roads.” They also said that parents and students are given the NPS Student Handbook at the beginning of each school year.
