The Hudson City School District is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our students, teachers and staff. As part of this commitment, HCSD has been voluntarily testing drinking water in each of its school buildings as far back as 2007.
In continuing this commitment, the District has proactively conducted water testing due to regional and national concerns over the quality of drinking water in schools prior to new legislation requiring schools to test their water supplies. (Until recently, schools in New York State were not required to test their drinking water for lead contamination. Recent water testing legislation signed into law by Governor Cuomo on September 6, 2016 now requires school districts to test their drinking water for lead contamination, meaning that HCSD is ahead of many districts in the state.)

The safety of drinking water at HCSD has been a priority for nearly 10 years, and the District will continue to keep drinking water safety as a top priority for the health and well-being of all students and staff in our schools.
