PORTVILLE, NY — Portville Central School will be closed Thursday and Friday because a school district staff member has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a notice posted on the district Wednesday by Coralie McMahon, administrative assistant to the superintendent.

In a notice posted on the district website, McMahon said the district plans to return to in-person classes on Tuesday because Monday is a school holiday.

“At this point, there is no evidence that the COVID-19 transmission is occurring at school,” she said. “We will continue to practice masking, spacing and hygiene practices when we resume classes on Tuesday.”
