Reopening in the Fall

The Porter-Gaud Reopening Task Force is working to provide you with clarity about the year to come. Our preliminary plans incorporate the School’s guiding principles, which are mission-driven and will provide us with the roadmap in our planning, and several operating modes, which are informed by state and national health and safety guidelines. We will keep our community updated here and on division landing pages. 

COMMUNICATION: Our communication with you will be proactive, transparent, and timely throughout the summer and school year. Please expect the following communications:

  • Week of August 3 - We will share and post student academic schedules, orientation dates/times, garnet and grey cohorts, and phased reopening schedules by division.
