I am not sure if you are serious here or just having fun, but, if yer serious, then I guess the first thing to do is ask you why you would feel that wearing a bandana would be constitutionally protected? The term "separation of church and state" is a rough concept to desribe an aspect of the First Amendment, though the term itself does not appear in the constitution.
Here is the First Amendment to the US Constitution's Bill Of Rights:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
If your school has a policy with regards to headgear, I don't see how it impinges on your religious rights as Pastafarians are not required to wear bandanas everywhere as a result of their adherence to their specific religious beliefs.
Can you please restate the issue to better illustrate where you feel that a potential constitutional violation may be occuring? My reason for asking is that based upon what you have presented, the answer to your question is a simple "no." (well, not "no" to contacting the ACLU, but to the constitutional violation part
