Welcome to Spring Semester, Everyone!

January 19, 2021

Welcome to the Spring Semester, P.K. Families! We are looking forward to the second half of the year with all of you! As you know, we are excited to begin our second semester with our secondary students in our brand new building!

We sent some information for all families (K-12) before the break and we’re sending it along again as a reminder before we see each other again on Wednesday on campus or online. Most things stay the same across campus, but please read the information below to be sure that you are up to date with what’s happening on campus. Communications for secondary families about their first day in the new building are being shared directly via email, on the web, and via Facebook.

School Times:
Elementary School Day – NO Change
8:00am – 2:30pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday
8:00am – 12:45pm Wednesday

Secondary School Day – Minor Changes | Bell Schedule Spring 2021

Pick-Up and Drop-Off Stay the Same
Drop-off and pick-up locations will be the same for the remainder of the school year. Elementary students are dropped off and picked up in the Front Circle on the north end of campus (accessed on SW 11th Street),  secondary students are dropped off and picked up on the south end of campus in front of the Gym (on SW 10th Terrace, accessed via SW 16th Avenue), and families with both elementary and secondary students may be dropped off and picked up in the Front Circle.

Changes to Campus Access During the School Day
Family members and visitors to campus who intend to exit their vehicles will check in at the Front Gate using a State-issued ID in order to receive a visitor’s pass. Please have your IDs ready to be scanned when you arrive at the Front Gate. IDs must be scanned BEFORE visitors/family members enter campus. Directions/maps to the new Main Office, secondary building, and other locations on campus will be provided at the Front Gate as needed. After checking in at the Front Gate and parking, families/visitors will proceed to their destination (e.g., tech help, business office, counselors, clinic, etc.).

Changes to Tardy Arrivals
Elementary: Before 9am: Students late to campus and arriving before 9:00am will be screened at the Front Gate and may be dropped off in the Front Circle. Students may go directly to the Elementary Building, and check in at the Tardy Kiosk in the lobby. Drivers who wish to leave their vehicles and escort students on campus must have their State IDs screened at the Front Gate to receive a sticker and park in visitor parking near the Performing Arts Center. Family members may not enter the Elementary Building. After 9:00am, elementary students/families will be directed to the Main Office in the Secondary Building to check in. Directions/maps to the Main Office will be provided at the Front Gate when a family checks in.

Secondary: Vehicles dropping students off on campus after 8:15am (when the 16th Avenue gate closes), enter the Front Gate and drivers check in using a State-issued ID if they are planning to exit their vehicles on campus. Student drivers enter through the Front Gate and check in with the gate guard. Only students with P.K. Yonge-issued decals may park on campus. Secondary students check in at the Tardy Kiosk in the Main Office. If needed, directions/maps to the Main Office will be provided at the Front Gate when a family checks in.

After School | Campus Hours/Supervision
Elementary students must be picked up or sent to Blue Wave After School fifteen (15) minutes after school is dismissed. Elementary students waiting to be picked up in the Main Office of the New Secondary Building after 2:45pm (Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri)/1:00pm (Wed.) will not be released from the Main Office without being signed out by an adult.

Secondary students go to the Cafeteria for after school study hall. Supervision in the cafeteria area is provided until 4:00pm
