A Colorado girl was briefly barred from school after she shaved her head to support her friend who has cancer.
Caprock Academy said nine-year-old Kamryn Renfro broke the school’s dress code when she shaved her head in solidarity with 11-year-old Delaney Campbell. The school has since reversed its decision after an outpouring of support for both of the girls.
A 9-year-old girl who was banned from school for shaving her head to support a friend with cancer was back in class Tuesday after reports of the disciplinary action surfaced.
A staff member from Caprock Academy in Grand Junction told FoxNews.com that the school is happy to have the student back and its board of directors is holding a closed meeting later tonight about the situation.
school officials told the student, Kamryn, she couldn't come back to class without a wig or until her natural hair grew back because her shaved head violates the school's dress code.
She broke the dress code, plain and simple.
She should have asked permission for an exception to the dress code beforehand.
Ladies’ Hair: Should be neatly combed or styled. No shaved heads.
Gentlemen’s Hair: Hair should be neatly combed and styled. Hair should not be arranged or colored so to draw undue attention to the student. Hair must be natural looking and conservative in its color. Radical changes in hair color during the school year are unacceptable. The hair may be as short as needed, but no shaved heads.

The progressive mindset hard at work trying to brainwash the leaders of tomorrow.
All the anti bullying everybody is a winner, you had better follow the rules crap is causing weakness and apathy of mind and body. The progressive mindset is a setup for failure if you let it in.
Many I am sure are thinking this has noting to do with the progressive mindset.......You would be wrong please find the truth.
The term zero tolerance was first employed by President ronald reagan's administration when it launched its War on Drugs initiative in the early 1980s. Some school districts embraced the initiative in an attempt to eradicate drug possession and drug use on school property. The policy became law, however, when Congress passed the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Act of 1989 (Pub.L. 101-226, December 12, 1989, 103 Stat. 1928). The act banned the unlawful use, possession, or distribution of drugs and alcohol by students and employees on school grounds and college campuses. It required educational agencies and institutions of higher learning to establish disciplinary sanctions for violations or risk losing federal aid. As a result, the majority of schools and colleges immediately began to adopt zero tolerance polices to safeguard their federal funding.
