  • For freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, a total of 3 UNPREPARED classes in a marking period will result in a failing grade.
  • For seniors, a total of 2 UNPREPAIRED classes in a marking period will result in a failing grade.
  • All failing grades in Physical Education class will need to be made up during the summer.
