 2.  If a student does not dress for class. or is not dressed appropriately, they will receive an unprepared for the day.  Each unprepared a student receives will result in 10 points taken off their final grade.  Any student who accumulates four or more unprepared's in a marking period will fail Physical Education class for that marking period.  If a student accumulates 12 or more unprepared's or more. they will fail Physical Education for the year.  A student with a grade of a 90, has 2 unprepared's their final grade would be a 70, resulting from 10 points off for each unprepared.
