DICKINSON, Texas – McAdams Junior High School confiscated hooded sweatshirts from several students Tuesday, citing the district’s ban on hoodies.
Seventh grader Kyle Garza had to ride the unheated school bus in a sleeveless t-shirt then walk the rest of the way home in the wind.
Raine Garza, Kyle's mother, was not happy.
“It’s just getting ridiculous,” Raine said. “They’re putting all this gang affiliated stuff on these kids.”
The district said it banned hoodies a couple of years ago as a safety measure. However, the school sells hoodies to raise money, but kids cannot wear them on campus.
