School Closing and Delay Procedure:
All BVP Weather Related School Cancellation Notices can be found through the RI Broadcasters Association on local public media stations. Blackstone Valley Prep will announce school closings on public media, identified as “Rhode Island Mayoral Academy-Blackstone Valley” or “Blackstone Valley Prep.” When possible, the school will communicate through the automated call system, our website on the front page and/or family portal, and through social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.).
Please note that buses for Central Falls, Pawtucket, and Lincoln will follow the delay or cancellation schedule for those districts. For example, if Blackstone Valley Prep has a regular day, but Lincoln cancels, there will be no Lincoln bussing, but Blackstone Valley Prep will still have school. In some cases, our bus company may decide that it is safe to provide bussing. In the case that our vendor believes they can safely operate bussing even if a sending district is delayed or closed, WE WILL RUN BUSES.
