·         Physical Education Classes: WCHS policy is that all students will wear an approved PE uniform.  Students must purchase the uniform for $20.  Students who do not wear the appropriate PE uniform will be sent to ALC.  Since they are not in PE class, the period will count as an unexcused absence.  Repeated PE dress code violations will be considered insubordination.
