Commencement guests should park in the Tennis Court Lot (number 5), Riverview – Pool & Squash Building (number 2) or The Grist Mill (number 1). All parking is located off of Garden Street.
Accessible parking is reserved behind Jones, 54 Main Street (number 17), and at the Alumnae and Development Office, 66 Main Street (number 12), as well as in marked locations in all other campus parking areas.
IMPORTANT PARKING INFORMATION FOR BOARDING SENIORS
Parents and guardians of senior boarding students are asked to park on the “Senior Beach” lawn, just off Main Street via School Street, and adjacent to the senior dorms. This will ensure close proximity to packing vehicles after commencement concludes. The area will be marked, and a member from the Porter’s staff will be on hand to help direct parking.
CLASS OF 2022 LEGACIES
These legacies represent all legacies here at school and the enduring mission of our school to prepare young women for college, for leadership, and for life – a mission which has remained unchanged since 1843. Traditionally, the Daisy Wreath is hung by the senior with the strongest and most direct line of Ancient relatives.
