There are several different options available to students at Nashua Catholic.

 

Option #1: Nashua School Bus Routes for Nashua Residents:

Eligible Nashua residents will receive their bus passes in the mail from the Nashua Department of Transportation over the summer. We do not know exactly when the passes are sent, but the Department of Transportation will send out routes and passes once they have finished determining the routes for next year.

  • you have questions about transportation eligibility
  • you have moved and need to change transportation

Contact the bus company at 603-883-0251 if:

The cost to each student is $500 for the morning service throughout the year.  Sign-ups and payment arrangements are made directly with Student Transportation, which provides monthly or yearly payment options and other conveniences for families.

 

 

Option #3 : Picking Up and Dropping Off By Car

Many families who live outside Nashua choose to drive their students to and from school or to carpool with others who live in their community. If families need assistance in contacting other parents, please call the school office.

Students should be dropped off at the cafeteria entrance in the parking lot in the back entrance to the school on Columbia Ave in the morning. Please enter using the driveway through the fence, pull up to the school to drop of students, then continue alongside the St. Thomas More building to exit onto Concord St. 

After school, students are picked up at the main entrance on Bartlett Avenue. Prior to pickup time, cars should drive up Columbia Avenue from Concord St. to Wellington Avenue (TWO streets up from the school) and come down Wellington to Bartlett in time for the 2:30 dismissal. Parking on Webster Avenue should only be used for sports carpools and urgent needs that require the parent to come into the school at the end of the day to excuse a student early.
