Busing Information

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR FREE BUS TRANSPORTATION?

Any student who lives two (2) or more miles from Notre Dame Academy is eligible for free busing. Other school districts that provide free transportation to NDA include Ashwaubenon, Howard-Suamico, Pulaski, and West De Pere. East De Pere provides bus transportation through Green Bay Metro on Bus Route #78.

WHERE CAN I FIND SPECIFIC INFORMATION ABOUT MY BUS ROUTE?

Once a student is enrolled at NDA, their name and address are sent to the Transportation Department by May 15 of the school district in which they reside. Bus routes are determined by each individual school district based on the names and addresses received by May 15. If you register at NDA after May 15, it will take up to two weeks after the school starts to receive busing.

The bus route plans are completed shortly before the school year begins. Each district will notify you about your students’ pick-up times and locations. NDA will receive a list of pick-up times and locations for all students requesting bus transportation. This information is distributed on “Book Pick-Up Days” at NDA in August.

Very Important: During the summer, residents of the Green Bay School District can expect to receive a postcard or letter from the Green Bay Transportation Department. This communication will inquire about the need for busing for the upcoming school year. It is essential that you respond. The postcard/letter will state “public transportation,” please be aware that this includes NDA, as NDA does not establish the bus routes for our students. All bus routes are determined by the Green Bay School District Transportation Department. Therefore, it is crucial that you provide your bus information to the Transportation Department, even if you do not require transportation. A student enrollment form, along with proof of residency (from the list), is required. (See Green Bay School District information below)

SCHOOL CLOSING/LATE START INFORMATION.

NDA follows the Green Bay Public School District’s cancellation policy. In case of uncertain weather conditions, please tune in to local radio stations for updates on school closings. If the Green Bay Public Schools cancel classes, NDA will also do the same. If school is canceled during the school day, students will be released only when the school district in which they reside dismisses its students. When a two-hour delay is called, buses will operate two hours later than the regularly scheduled time.

Extremely Important for Students Residing in the Green Bay Area School District. All students residing in the Green Bay School District must have a student enrollment form on file, along with proof of residency, to be eligible for busing by May 12. Click here for the Green Bay transportation letter.
