P.K. Yonge Reopening Plan 2020-21 | Details
The Reopening Plan 2020-21 provides an overview of steps being taken for the coming school year and shifts made in response to COVID-19. The Reopening Plan can be found under the Fall 2020 tab on the P.K. website.

COVID-19 Campus Response | Details
The COVID-19 Campus Response describes procedures and protocols that will be followed on campus in response to COVID-related events including if students/staff/faculty are unwell during the school day and how UF Health engages with P.K. Yonge families. The COVID-19 Campus Response is also found under the Fall 2020 tab on the P.K. website.

Daily Screening at Home | Questions
Families, faculty, staff, substitutes, and coaches are asked to complete a home self-screening (Daily Screening Questions) for COVID-19 risk factors and symptoms prior to returning to campus each school day. Screenings which may include similar questions will also take place on the school campus each morning before students are able to exit vehicles.

University of Florida Health Guidance | Details
P.K. Yonge will follow University of Florida health guidance that includes UF policies and CDC guidelines addressing appropriate face coverings/masks, physical distancing, frequent handwashing, and staying at home when you are ill.

Student Absences | Attendance
When an on-campus elementary student needs to stay home, arrangements will be made with the student’s teacher to support learning needs. When an on-campus secondary student needs to stay home and IS ABLE to attend class virtually, they continue to log in to their Canvas courses and attend Zoom sessions. For students (both on-campus and off-campus) unable to attend classes virtually, standard attendance protocols will be followed. Email:
