You really did a piece of advertising for your school when some adults making decisions barred a girl for shaving her head in support of a friend. Those same adults must of never heard of St Baldricks that just had many people doing the same thing for support of cancer. They must also had never been supported by someone else in a time of crisis. I had planned to write a scathing letter to those adults but at this time just feel they would be too insensitive or stupid to understand. Shame on all of you that allowed this decision to be made. And please take yourselves out of….. or be taken out of jobs in "education."

It is a shame the young people today have such poor examples to have to deal with on
a daily basis I can't imagine what kind of teachers teach there. What a terrible pity
this young lady was doing a very courages thing supporting her ill friend and these
adults made a very bad decision sometimes rules have to be overlooked and this was one
of those times.

Schools administrators and teachers increasingly seem unable to make sound decisions during non-crisis situations. This, and another a couple weeks ago ref. a young girl getting frost bite due to a senseless school policy, creates an environment within our schools where students are unsure and lack confidence in their teachers. What is going to happen when these same administrators have to make decisions during a crisis? Administrators and teachers live day after day in fear of making wrong decisions, thus have obviated the process of reasoning through simple matters. More reason why we as adult parents have to teach our kids to use sound reason.

The administration missed a great teaching opportunity when they suspended this 11 year old girl who was supporting her friend. Using this as a example would have taught others to set aside your personal looks in support of someone less fortunate.

I would hope those responsible would publicly apologize and, if they truly mean their apology, would shave their heads as well.

But one can only hope. . . . . .

I am appalled at the news that you have suspended a young lady with a compassionate heart because she cared enough of her friend to shave her head to make her feel less obvious. Even the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES shaved his head for a kid that underwent Chemo. This girl is being punished for showing kindness and compassion? Are you kidding me? No wonder this nation is morally going down the tubes. With people in authority showing this kind of decision making. You should be ashamed and not only ask the girls involved for forgiveness, but also the nation and most of all, the God of Creation. Just ask yourself, would this be different if it had been my child?

Shame on you Caprock Academey administrators! Mainly for not being adult enough to understand the difference between the letter and the spirit of the law. You may have been right by the letter of the law, BUT you were dead wrong, obviously, by the spirit of the law. Grow up you mindless idiots.

Sorry your administration made such a blunder that the entire country knows all about. Is this all about zero tolerance? Really, what was you school thinking? Actually is a sad story about your school, which could have been a wonderful story, instead. Well, I hope your school has learned its lesson.

I LOVE this school and all it has done with my children's education. They work had to meet the individual needs of my children. My children have struggled in other schools but thrive in this school. I love that the safe environment physically and emotionally that promotes learning. My children have meaningful projects that help them apply their knowledge and demonstrate all that they are learning. I am so happy with the staff and families that make Caprock such a wonderful school.
