School Counseling
Counselors do not work all summer, but do make time in early summer  and before school starts to consult with families regarding the upcoming school year. Please connect with your counselor via email. Mr. Chambliss and Mrs. Theiss will be back on campus after July 26, 2021.

Student Schedules and First Day Procedures
On the first day of each school year, students arrive on campus and find their first period class and location posted on the windows of the Cafeteria. Students are listed by grade level and in alphabetical order. Staff are on hand before school to help students find their names and the locations of their first period classes.  Complete class schedules will be shared with students in their first period class.

Course Schedules | High School 2021-22
High school students at P.K. Yonge are able to personalize their schedules to allow them to maintain four academic core classes across the fall and spring semesters while continuing to explore a variety of elective course options.

Schedule Change Requests | Details
Class schedule change requests take place during the early part of the school year. Dates and procedures will be published at the start of the new school year. Stay tuned!

Summer Reading
There is no assigned summer reading for the summer of 2021. If you’re looking for suggestions, check out the P.K. Yonge Hidden Library Blog for book reviews.

Supply Lists | High School Basic Supplies
For high school, a generic school supply list is provided. Course-specific supplies for high school will be provided in course syllabi on the first day of school.

Skyward is the student information system we use to communicate with families, for grading, scheduling, and many other things!

We ask that families always keep Skyward updated with current phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and emergency contacts. Don’t forget!
