The Nordonia School District provides transportation for District residents in grades K-8 living at least one mile from St. Barnabas. Busing is not provided for students in Preschool or Pre-Kindergarten.  

Parents are responsible to request busing from Nordonia.  Busing forms will be included with each year's registration/re-registration packet and must be returned upon registration.  Bus routes and times are announced in August before school starts and are available online at

We’re currently looking to expand our busing to communities outside of Nordonia. If you are a Twinsburg resident and would like more information, please contact Laurel Klingensmith. If you are a Brecksville resident, please contact Maryann Cordiano.
