Senior Update | News, Dates, Reminders

March 15, 2021

Families of P.K. Yonge Seniors — With Spring Break just next week we wanted to sh are some important information, dates, and reminders about the end of the school year for the Class of 2021.

Important Information

Graduation this year will be held at Citizens Field on May 27 at 7pm. Indoor locations at UF are limiting the number of attendees per graduate to two per graduate. We are eager to include as many family members as possible at graduation and understand that at Citizens Field (outdoors) we will be able to include more audience members. The actual number will be determined by Alachua County and we will provide details to families closer to the date.
