    Girl, 9, barred from school for shaving head to support friend with cancer

    A 9-year-old Colorado girl was kept out of school on Monday after shaving her head to support a friend battling cancer.

    KDVR.com reports that officials at Caprock Academy in Grand Junction 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.

    With her parents' approval, Kamryn shaved her head in support of her friend, 11-year-old Delaney, who is battling neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer, and recently started chemotherapy.

    It's times like these I wish parents would/could take a stand. And I wish 15 other classmates would shave their heads. The stand I wish the little girl's parents would let her take would be to NOT attend school until the rule is changed. How simple would it be to amend the rule to allow shaved heads when one student in the school has lost his/hers due to cancer??

    Easy-Peasy.

    I am positively SICK of these academicians who don't have brain cells.

    It is a charter school. If you do not like their policies, don't send your kids there.

    I am so glad that my kid is grown. Today's schools with all of the strict policies, like ", said the dress code "was created to promote safety, uniformity, and a non-distracting environment for the school's students. Under this policy, shaved heads are not permitted." (OP link). Is just stupid. There have been reports in the past where the classmates shaved heads in support of one who is sick.

    I agree that parents need to rally and force the school to get real.

    Every kid in that school should shave their head right now. See what the administration does.

    She could've asked permission from the school. This isn't public school; there are distinct rules.

    What a good friend. I agree, wishing all the kids would shave their head in support of the girl and protest the school.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Do you know that many of the best education systems in the world have not just dress codes, but school uniforms as well. Part of what charter schools ate supposed to do is provide alternatives to the standard US public schools.

    You'll end up pissing parents off. They pay good money for their children's conformity.

    seems an arbitrary rule
    atrociously so if it causes a child to forfeit a part of her education
    kudos for the kid to be willing to shave her head in support of her friend. she should be celebrated by the community instead of made a pariah by the school

    the parents should have kept quiet and sued - for large money - that their daughter was denied an education because her head was shaved for medical reasons: to get rid of lice

    You can't sue over a child's suspension for rule-breaking. Were that so, the ghettos would be packed with millionaires.
