Pickens County Schools Employee Tests Positive for COVID-19

Community, Dragon's Corner

Pickens County School District was notified this evening that an employee of Pickens High
School, who was in the building today, has since received a positive diagnosis for COVID-19.
Out of an abundance of caution, the district has immediately closed the building for extensive
cleaning and will continue to follow guidance from the Department of Public Health and the
CDC.

Graduation activities scheduled for this week will continue as planned. Although the staff
member was not in the area planned for filming, the location of the graduation ceremony has
been moved to a different section of the PHS campus and not in the main facility. We have
multiple locations on campus where filming can take place if needed. Graduates, families and
guests will receive specific directions regarding the location through Infinite Campus messenger
and email, as well as at the Welcome Center upon arrival.
Volunteers and staff members will be available to assist families and graduates. The district will
continue to be vigilant in following necessary precautions in order to maintain the health and
safety of our students, their families, and our staff.
