No hooded sweatshirts in the hallways, they can put a sweat shirt on during class, no hood up, it must come off when they switch class in the hallway (uniform policy)

Nope. My school also wears uniforms so this is part of our uniform policy. Cultural head coverings are allowed, but no hats.

But, of course, the senior sweatshirts are hooded. Not sure why they thought that was a great idea but....

Nope - hoods must come down.  Kids will still try to put them up, we remind them, they "forget" and the beat goes on...

kids try to get away with it but it doesn't take long for a teacher to tell them to put it down. we enforce dress code a lot more than the other two high schools in my county.

Not allowed here as well. And neither are headphones, which is usually the reason they have their hood up.

Until this year they were supposed to keep hoods down at all times here...this year they do not care. Having said that, the older nurse I work with has a conniption every time a kid walks in with a hood up. She feels that it is disrespectful, which I noticed is the feeling among most of the older teachers as well. 

I get that, but the building is pretty cold. If I really need to assess something that is covered by the hood I ask them to remove it. Never had any resistance. Honestly I don't feel disrespected by a hoodie half as much as I feel disrespected by some of those same older teachers who think all I do is pass out band aids.

It's whatever.

Hoods are not allowed to be worn up in side the school.  That being said...

I don't know if its a regional thing or all across the globe, but teens now a days (jeez i feel old) seem to hate all things coat-like.   We have pretty low temps all winter long here in the midwest and teens just throw on hoodies and away they go.   So I'd say at least 60-70% of the high school kids come to school in hoodies with them up, because, you know, its COLD outside.   But most remember and slide them down as they walk in.  Its not too much of a problem.  We could never ban the wearing of hoodies all together.   They are a staple around here.

They are a staple in Texas as well, but for opposite reasons. Our winters are fairly mild, so most kids don't own a true coat, just hoodies. They are allowed to wear the hood outside, just not in the buildings.

Their used to be a no hood policy, but admin for some reason stopped enforcing it. I guess I'm old, I make students remove their hood when they enter the clinic. It's more for the reason of them hearing me and not getting "huh, what" while I'm doing my assessment.

We allow them for the time being... Myself and our principal (who was a teacher at the elementary school I attended!) are used to a no hats/no hoods policy, but everything is much more casual here. Though, with some of the taller 5th & 6th graders, when they have their hoods up, it can be a little disconcerting/dangerous if an adult sized person with a hood up is walking down the hall, as it is not easy to identify them...
