DELAND, Fla. (AP) -- A high school senior will have to lose his twin 16-inch hair spikes if he wants to attend classes at DeLand High School.

Seventeen-year-old Asher Stonesifer was sent home from school Tuesday after school officials told him not to wear the Liberty Spike Mohawk to class anymore.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://bit.ly/SoDl94 ) reports Asher and his mother, Rae Stonesifer, complained to the Volusia County School Board, arguing the hairstyle is not clearly banned in the countywide dress code.

But Principal Mitch Moyer decided Thursday to stand by his ruling. He told Stonesifer's mother that the only exception will be during spirit week in October, when students are allowed to dress "out of the norm."

His mother says the teen wore his hair down at school on Thursday.
