A 4-year-old boy who was disciplined for having long hair has returned to his class with a brand-new 'do.
Pre-kindergartner Taylor Pugh, nicknamed "Tater Tot," rejoined his classmates at his Mesquite elementary school Tuesday.
Elizabeth Taylor said her son's hair is just as long as ever, but now she's styled it in a double French braid pinned up at the base of his neck. The school principal approved the style.
The boy typically wears his hair long and had been sequestered from classmates at Floyd Elementary School in Balch Springs since late November.
The long hair violates the Mesquite school district dress code, which says boys' hair must be kept out of the eyes and cannot extend below the bottom of earlobes or over the collar of a dress shirt.
