The successful start of the school year and the transition to yellow mode along with campus and programmatic improvements would not have been possible without the Cyclone Fund, Porter-Gaud's annual fund.  Over $500,000 of unbudgeted funds were secured through the generosity of our Community.  Throughout this year, we will continue to depend on our Cyclone family as we remain vigilant about the safety and well-being of our community.  We will move forward together!

Wash Your Hands!

We know washing our hands helps protect us from spreading the virus. Hand washing stations were built around campus to make it easier to keep hands clean.

Plexiglass Dividers & Desks

For LS and MS students who remain in the same classroom most of the day,dividers add an another layer of protection.  In addition, 70 desks were purchased for the US to convert other spaces on campus into classrooms.    

Singing in Space

Choirs are able to rehearse outdoors using social distancing thanks to the use of new Singer's Mask, which are specially designed to keep singers protected while making it easier to sing.

Testing our Athletes

At a cost of $50 per person, our higher contact sport athletes and coaches are tested regularly. This will continue for our winter sports. Our training staff now has the protective gear needed to safely administer these tests.  

Dining Safely

The cafeteria has been reorganized to allow for a smooth flow of students entering and exiting in the same direction.  Individual stations for salads, hot items, fresh fruit, and prepacked food make for a safe and healthy lunch.

Outdoor Space

Three large tents and numerous outdoor chairs and tables have been added to campus for meeting space, classes, study hall, and lunch.

Directing Traffic

Traffic flow on campus is crucial to minimizing risks of community spread. We were able to add signage all around campus to make it easier for students to know proper routes and appropriate distances to keep them safe.

Restroom Remodel

Thirteen lower school in-classroom bathrooms were updated with new tile, flooring, metered faucets with hot water, ventilation, paper towel dispensers, and self-flushing toilets.

Fresh Air & Water

We have installed nine additional locations for touchless water bottle fill stations.  Also, students, faculty, and staff can breathe a little easier after 54 iWave bi-polar ionization units were installed in HVAC units in buildings around campus.
