Piedmont Public Schools Staff Member Tests Positive For COVID-19

An email was sent to parents of Piedmont Public Schools students today notifying them that a staff member of the Early Childhood Center has tested positive for COVID-19. The good news is that this staff member has not been inside any of the school's facilities this year though or come in contact with any staff members or students.

The email reads:
