(FOX NEWS) — A 9-year-old girl who was banned from her Colorado school for shaving her head to support a friend with cancer was back in class Tuesday after reports of the disciplinary action surfaced.

A staff member from Caprock Academy in Grand Junction told FoxNews.com that the school is happy to have the student back and its board of directors is holding a closed meeting later tonight about the situation.

KDVR.com reported that school officials 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.
