pippi longstocking: You Americans are a bunch of retards that wouldn't recognize common sense nor compassion if it farked you in the ass.
fluffy2097: Considering what the school seems to be about from a quick google search. It does not surprise me that there was a dress code that included hair requirements.I think that perhaps if the mother called ahead and explained the situation, it wouldn't have been a big deal.The problem is this girl walked into school with a shaved head, teachers are going to think she's trying to be rebellious and distracting (which is usually why kids in school shave their head or wear shirts they have to turn inside out because of whats printed on them).If you saw a kid at a private school suddenly come in one day with a shaved head, you wouldn't think "Oh, one of her friends must have gotten cancer!" would you?
Lawnchair: Frederick: It didnt explicitly state, but I'm guessing Caprock Academy in Grand Junction is a private school and that they agreed to those rules when she enrolled your there.As it turns out, not so much. 100% public-funded charter school. Which makes me find their crap a lot more in the wrong.
GrizzlyPouch: I can understand the rule because it's a school, the kids are there to learn and a little girl with a shaved head would be a huge distraction.

GrizzlyPouch: not a distraction?
redmid17: ReapTheChaos: At the start of every school year they send home a packet of information and forms you need to read, fill out and sign. One of those will be the schools official code of conduct. Those rules apply to your little snowflake just as much as all the other kids in that school, and nowhere in there does it say those rules can be broken if you think you have a spiffy reason to do so.7/10
GrizzlyPouch: Learning lesson for everybody, and now it's much less distracting
