Accessibility

In response to the Ancient Census feedback that we have received to date, and in our efforts to make Miss Porter’s School an authentic community of belonging, we have worked to ensure that our events and programming are accessible to all who want to participate. In addition to the many changes made to campus to make school more physically accessible to students, Ancients, employees, visitors, below, you will find the list of accommodation and accessibility considerations we have made throughout our Reunion planning process. 

  • Our Dining Service, Flik Independent School Dining, will offer a wide range of food options throughout the weekend. If you have any food allergies or dietary restrictions, the staff will be able to answer questions for you regarding ingredients. Please know that the MPS campus is nut-free, and that there will always be gluten-free, dairy free and vegetarian options available at each event. Please email alumnaerelations@missporters.org if you will be coming to campus and have a severe food allergy that we should know about. 
  • Large-print weekend schedules will be available at registration.
  • A designated quiet space will be available.
  • Gender neutral bathrooms will be available in Main (primary floor), the Noni, the Dr. Glenda Newell-Harris ’71 Student Center, the M. Burch Tracy Ford Library (first floor), and The Grist Mill.
  • A Friends of Bill W meeting will be held on Saturday morning.
  • Mocktails and non-alcoholic beverages will be available in every place that alcohol will be offered. 
  • Two separate nursing and pumping spaces and a Pluie changing table will be available in Main.
  • Dining chairs will accommodate larger body sizes.
  • Golf cart transportation will be available from the Farmington Inn to campus as well as around campus for those that need it.
  • Pronoun ribbons will be provided at registration for Ancients to share their pronouns on their name tags if they feel comfortable. 
  • There will be ample spaces and signage for accessible parking.

 

If you have any questions, or specific accessibility issues that you would like to discuss prior to your visit, please feel free to contact alumnaerelations@missporters.org or call 860-409-3634.
