Miss Porter’s is a mask optional community. Any attendees experiencing symptoms should be masked for the ceremony and while on campus. Graduation will be held in person and outside rain or shine.
We strongly encourage all attending guests to be prepared for inclement weather. Guests should be prepared to dress for conditions ranging from drizzle to heat and humidity. Please note that guest seating for the ceremony is under the protection of a tent.
Commencement guests should park in the Tennis Court Lot (number 5), Riverview – Pool & Squash Building (number 2), The Grist Mill (number 1), or Porter Road Loop (number 19). All parking is located off of Garden Street or Porter Road.
Accessible parking is reserved behind Jones, 54 Main Street (number 18), and at the Alumnae and Development Office, 66 Main Street (number 13), 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 2023 LEGACIES
These legacies represent 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.
List of legacy students coming soon!
