NDES students reside in Lake, Geauga, and Cuyahoga Counties. Therefore, we understand the importance of safe, convenient transportation options for our families.

Public Bus Transportation
Public School districts that provide round trip transportation at no additional cost to parents currently include: Berkshire, Cardinal, Chardon, Kenston, Kirtland, Mayfield, Mentor, Newbury, Riverside, West Geauga, and Willoughby-Eastlake.

NDCL-Provided Bus Transportation
As a service to our families, NDES offers bus transportation through NDCL for students who live in neighborhoods where busing is not provided by the local public school district. NDCL-provided bus transportation will serve those locations in Lake, Cuyahoga, and Geauga counties where the expressed need is greatest.

Car - Arrival
  1. Drivers are asked to use the lower lot entrance and follow the perimeter of the lot. Students are dropped off at the orange cones and enter the school by the side door.
  2. If it is necessary to conduct business in the office, parents are to park in the Sisters of Notre Dame parking lot closest to the SND chapel and walk with their children to the school.

Car - Dismissal

  1. Parents are to park their cars in the lower parking lot.

  2.  If business needs to be transacted at dismissal time, parents are asked to arrive early and complete business by 2:15pm. After that time, the parking area is reserved for the buses. If a parent will be in the school past 2:15pm, the car should be parked in the Sisters of Notre Dame parking lot closest to the SND chapel.
  3. Parents are not permitted to pick up other students without the express permission of the parent.
The blacktop area is closed to any traffic between 9:30am and 2:15pm. If you have business to conduct with the school during this time, park in the bus parking area until 2:15pm or in the Sisters of Notre Dame parking lot closest to the SND chapel.
