Fall 2020 Return to School

P.K. Yonge is committed to providing the highest quality educational experience and care for all members of the Blue Wave community.  With the health and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff as our top priority, the plan to reopen the P.K. Yonge campus is designed to respond to changing circumstances, continue the educational program for all students, and is based on guidance from the University of Florida, UF Health, and the Florida Department of Education.

Current circumstances mean that our school program will not look and feel like the P.K. Yonge program that we love. We look forward to the day that we can all return to campus together as the Blue Wave community.

Instructional Program

In addition to priorities named above, critical parameters guiding the program design include limiting the number of people with whom any person on campus interacts, avoiding student class location changes, supporting the mental health and well-being of the community, and supporting student learning both on and off campus.

The Virtually P.K. program options offered for the Fall of 2020 will be based on our Virtually P.K. program from 2019-20 school year. Students selecting the off-campus Virtually P.K. program will remain enrolled as full-time P.K. Yonge students. Modifications will be made in response to changing circumstances. As a reference, families may find details here: Virtually P.K.
