Back to School 2020 – Update #1

August 4, 2020

P.K. Families! We are eager to welcome new-to-P.K. students and families and reconnect with returning students and families this coming school year! This has been a busy summer and our work continues as we finalize plans for Fall 2020.

This is the time of year when we begin to share information in preparation for the new school year. Keep an eye on your email, Announcements on the web, or the P.K. Yonge Facebook page for updates.

As we approach the start of school, we continue our close consultation with UF Health as we develop procedures for the school year. Given our recent experiences as a school community, we know that circumstances may change at short notice. We’re committed to sharing information as it becomes available and we’re grateful for the support, patience, and cooperation of the Blue Wave community.


Family Update | Thursday, August 13, 11:00am | ZOOM
Dr. Mike Lauzardo, Director of UF Health Screen, Test & Protect, Deputy Director Emerging Pathogens Institute will spend an hour with the P.K. Yonge community to share information about COVID-19 and talk through plans as we begin our school year.
