Ever Wondered what Happened to the "E" in the Grading System?

I was looking at my son interim and came up with this topic. I remember growing up, our grading system use to have a E. The E of course meant you were failing that course/class. Basicially it use to be A, B, C, D, E, there was never F's. Now that my child is older and in school, I have noticed they give out F's instead of E's. How is the grading system where you live? Do you know whatever happened to the E? Why they stopped using it? Is there state or country that still uses the "E"?

Maybe it was a southern USA state thing... I was raised in Alabama and they used the E for a long time. I know I had them in elementary-high school. Each state is different I supose. My son got the S's and U's until he started middle school. He is in the sixth grade now. He don't get them anymore.
