Covid - Update

Dear Port Jervis Learning Community, 

We have been informed this afternoon that a student of the Port Jervis City School District has tested positive for COVID-19.  The student attends Hamilton Bicentennial Elementary School.  The student is hybrid instruction, last attending school on December 22, 2020, therefore there are no proximate or direct contacts in the school setting for this student.   

Thank you for understanding that, due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the names of individuals with COVID-19. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Orange County Department of Health at 


Mike Rydell
Superintendent of Schools
