Re: Bus transportation for School Closing in sending districts

In relation to school closings for inclement weather, please note that The Hope Academy does NOT follow the closings of either the Providence or North Providence school districts.The Hope Academy and Meeting Street will make these considerations together.

However, if either your resident public school district or Meeting Street/The Hope Academy is closed, no school bus transportation will be provided that day. If Meeting Street makes the choice to stay open, even though Providence and/or North Providence Public Schools are closed, then please note that there will be no school bus transportation provided that day.
