My DS just turned 13 a few weeks ago and in the 6th grade. The principal called me yesterday and told me my DS needs to start shaving. I asked her what does he need to shave. She told me his face. Um he doesn't have hair on his face. He has peach fuzz on his top lip. I know it dark peach fuzz but it still peach fuzz not hair. I looked in the hand book and it doesn't say anything about 7th grade and under about shaving. I don't think my DS is ready to shave and disagree with the principal. Can they make him shave?

 no they cant. That principal is being ridiculous. i would just ignore this call. if she trys it again just tell her no. If she continues then take it to the school board.

If it doesn't say it in the handbook, I wouldn't. If they persist talk to the school board

I don't know if they can make him, but I would fight it. I'm tired of schools over using their authority.

Our dress code policy indicates that all children must have a "clean shaven apperance". That is for k-12.

Unless its a rule, they cant make him shave. However if he has that much peach fuzz now, then it would be good to start teaching him how to shave.
