UPDATE FROM AUGUST 2022
APS announced their recent decision regarding the elementary school rezoning. Piedmont Heights will remain at Morningside Elementary. More info from AJC.
Update from 6/7/22
The final vote is scheduled for August 8. The current recommendation on the table maintains that Piedmont Heights will remain at Morningside Elementary.
Update from 5/16/22
Even if you have kids at a private school or if you don't have school-aged children, these decisions affect our whole neighborhood – and all residents should feel empowered to make your voice heard on this matter.
Please sign our petition that supports the current APS proposal, which keeps Piedmont Heights children at the Morningside Elementary building: https://www.change.org/APSRezoning2022
A sample letter is available to use for sending your own to Dr. Herring and the BOE. Download the sample letter (Microsoft Word document)
Shraddha Srivastav Strennen will send out canvassing info to those who signed up. After that, she will keep info posted to our Piedmont Heights Facebook group rather than by email. Please join to stay informed.
