2. Caprock Academy said that their dress code is meant to diminish distractions and promote “uniformity,” and told Kamryn she couldn’t return unless she had a wig or her hair grew back.
“Caprock Academy does have a detailed dress code policy, which was created to promote safety, uniformity, and a non-distracting environment for the school’s students. Under this policy, shaved heads are not permitted,” said Catherine Norton Breman, President and Chair of Caprock Academy Board of Directors.
4. Delaney’s mom, Wendy Campbell, was shocked by the suspension. “I didn’t realize that hair was such an important aspect of a child at school,” Campbell said.
She added, “For a little girl to be really brave and want to shave her head in support of her friend, I thought that was a huge statement and it builds character in a child.”
5. Delaney had been incredibly moved by her friend’s act of kindness, saying it made her feel “very special and that I’m not alone,” but said the school’s reaction took some of the good feelings away.
“It makes me sad because she was really happy to go back to school and show people what she did, but now that she didn’t get to, she’s kind of sad,” Delaney said.
