Snow Delays & Cancellations

Provident follows Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) regarding delays and cancellations.

      • Families will receive notifications through our parent portal, as well as through all major news stations.
      • If there is a 2-hour snow delay, students should arrive between 9:45-10:05 a.m.

Snow Day Cancellation Procedure

If there is a cancellation, we will ask that students work asynchronously with work provided by their classroom teachers, for up to three snow days. (This is so we will not have to use make-up days listed on our calendar – April 14th, 18th, and June 9th.) If there is a 4th snow day, we will start to use these make-up days.

On these asynchronous days, there will be an attendance link sent out to all families and it is VERY important that you sign in through this link. Classroom teachers will share information about how to submit snow day assignments.


For transportation, families will also have to take note of their home district’s decision.

For example, if your district is canceled and PPS and PCS is open, your district will NOT provide transportation.

      • Additionally, if your district has a 2-hour delay, and PPS and PCS does not, your child will be transported to us 2 hours late unless you drive them.
      • If PCS has a 2-hour delay – all home district buses to PCS should transport 2 hours later unless they are canceled.

For transportation questions, you can reach out to your School District using the contact information found in the Bus Routes section.

2021-2022 Transportation Contacts

Any questions or concerns regarding transportation should be addressed directly to your home district.
