A school in suburban Jefferson, New York, has installed an anti-fraud system to ensure students are getting their hair removed after students reported a rash of students complaining about it, Buzzfeed reported.
The Jefferson High school’s Hair Removal Team (WHT) is the first in the state to take such action, the news outlet reported, adding that the team was “working on getting rid of some hair” that had been “infiltrating the school for several years.”
The team is currently working on removing hair from a student, who was told to call the school at 9 a.m. on Monday, according to Buzzfeed.
The student had complained to the WHT about a rash that was beginning to grow on her head.
The team removed the hair and put it in a plastic bag with a warning that “this will not be taken back to the school,” according to the news site.
Jefferson High’s head teacher told the school district that the school would be “more than happy to help” remove the hair, Buzzkill reported.
Jefferson is one of the only districts in New York to have implemented a program to eliminate unwanted hair.
A number of other districts, including Woodland Hills High School in San Francisco, have implemented similar programs, BuzzKill reported.
