CLOSURE OF WITTER ATHLETIC COMPLEX – EFFECTIVE AUGUST 3, 2020

Friday, July 31st, 2020 - Posted in All District News District Communications Latest Announcements

The Piedmont Unified School District will close the Witter Athletic Complex at 6:00 am on Monday, August 3rd until further notice The Complex includes Witter Field, the baseball and softball fields, the batting cages, and the Witter Field House restrooms.  This closure is due to persistent lack of compliance with the Alameda County Public Health Department’s Shelter in Place orders.

Despite repeated warnings from District staff, users of the Witter Complex have continued to play group sports in violation of COVID-19 health orders.  Similar issues led the City of Piedmont to close the Linda Beach Playfield last week.  The District regrets having to take this action and the inconvenience this may cause the community.  Nonetheless, continued lack of compliance on both City and District fields poses a serious public health risk, necessitating these closures.

The District will work with the City and County to determine when it is safe and appropriate to reopen the Witter Complex.  Questions or comments?  Please contact Director of Facilities Pete Palmer at ppalmer@piedmont.k12.ca.us
