cancerschool12A 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.
