A 9-year-old girl was banned from her school for shaving her head in support of a friend with cancer.
The school, Caprock Academy in Grand Junction, Colorado, suspended Kamryn Renfro Monday for violating the school dress code. They told her she couldn’t come back to class without a wig or until her natural hair grew back.
Kamryn had shaved her head with her parents’ approval, to show solidarity with her 12-year-old pal Delaney Clements, who is battling neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer, and is undergoing chemo.
Following the story’s media attention, a staff member said that the school has welcomed Kamryn back to class. The board of directors was holding a closed meeting last night about the situation.
