March 15, 2018

The P.K. Yonge Family Picnic is an annual event that takes place on the Friday before Spring Break.

Who Participates: Elementary families (and siblings in secondary)
Date: Friday, March 23
Time: 11:00am – 12:30pm
Location: On the grassy area in the middle of the front circle
Parking: Elementary upper field – enter via the northernmost gate near Depot Avenue

Important Check-in Information:
In the interest of campus safety, all family members need a visitor badge to attend the picnic. Please use the on-line sign-up to get your visitor badge printed ahead of time. On the day of the picnic, you can pick up your badge from your child’s teacher at the front circle. In order to use the on-line sign-up, you must have already shown your picture ID and had it scanned in the front office. We strongly encourage you to register ahead of time; lines were quite long last year! If you don’t register ahead of time, you will need to wait in line at the office to get a badge printed.

Secondary Siblings:
If you have a middle or high school sibling who attends P.K. and will be joining you for the picnic, please CONTACT THE ATTENDANCE OFFICE PRIOR TO THE PICNIC (a few days) and let Mrs. Sanchez know the student’s name, grade, and that they will need to be checked out for the picnic. The preferred method for contacting Mrs. Sanchez is via email (attendance@pky.ufl.edu). You can also call the attendance office at 352-392-1554 ext. 221. Middle and high school students who have officially been checked out for the picnic will be released at 11:00. If your secondary student will be returning to school after the picnic, please officially check them back in at the attendance office.

We realize every family may not be able to attend the picnic and we would like to make sure that every child has the opportunity to sit with a family or friend. Please let us know if we need to make arrangements for your child.

The picnic begins at 11:00. After morning drop-off, the front circle will be closed; there will be NO PARKING ON THE FRONT CIRCLE! The primary parking area will be on the elementary upper field. Enter via the northernmost gate near Depot Avenue. Arrive early to find the best parking! We look forward to seeing you there!

Most families bring lunches from home or from take-out places, although there will also be a kiosk of cafeteria food available for purchase on the front circle. Families also bring blankets or chairs to sit on.

When the picnic is over, you may check your child out early to keep from making an extra trip back to school, or bring your child back to his/her teacher if you need to return to work. Teachers will have clipboards with sign-out sheets at the front circle for quick check-out. With student safety in mind, parents MUST sign their children out before leaving
