Is there a form or exception where « Pierre et tu… » would be conjugated in the 2nd person singular instead of 2nd person plural?

Is there a form or exception where « Pierre et tu… » would be conjugated in the 2nd person singular instead of 2nd person plural?

My daughter had a quiz where she got « Pierre et tu allez au parc » wrong because it should have been Pierre et tu vas au parc.  I am struggling to explain this.  Is there a rule or an exception?

Hi Jennifer,

Even if "Pierre et toi" were used it should remain as 2nd person plural, so I agree with you.

Perhaps there is simply an error in your daughter's quiz?

Hi Jennifer, 

Where is this from because it is wrong?

It should be as Jim says -

Pierre et toi (vous) allez au parc
