I'd say "everybody/everyone does" and "everybody/everyone is".
From The Columbia Guide to Standard American English :
i would also say "Everyone does", "Everyone has", Everyone is", coz everyone is a singular word...
Sentence from The Columbia Guide to Standard American English:
Everyone is to bring his or her [their] calculators
Also shouldn't the word "Everyone" be two separate words - "Every one"? -- No. Everyone is a personal pronoun referring to humans ('Everyone was happy at the party.'). 'Every one' refers to all of a collection of things or people ('Your room is a mess. Pick up every one of your toys, please.' 'Everyone was happy at the party because every one of them was drunk.)
Sentence from The Columbia Guide to Standard American English: Everyone is to bring his or her (formal) [their (informal)] calculators
