Bus Info

Rehearsals in Asquith (for Junior and Senior Band) are not extra-curricular, therefore they are not optional.  Rehearsals are an important part of the program.  This is the only time that all the schools get together to be a full band.  Transportation is provided for this reason.  If you are unable to attend a rehearsal for any reason, please email the director as soon as you can, as well as the admin assistant at your school so that they can let the bus driver know.

Mondays – Senior Band Rehearsal in Asquith 4:15-6:15 Jazz 6:15-7:30
Parents are responsible for picking up students following Jazz rehearsal.

Wednesdays – Junior Band Rehearsal in Asquith 4:15-5:30

If buses are not running in the morning due to weather, there will not be rehearsal in Asquith.  An announcement will be made at the school during the day if rehearsal needs to be canceled due to a bus/buses are not running.  We cannot have rehearsal if the buses are not running.

As soon as the route buses leave the school, the band buses will pull up and wait for 2 minutes before they leave.  This does not apply to Dave Park (Perdue) as he takes the band kids on route.  This also applies to Tara Jaboeuf (Langham) – she gets there before the route buses on Mondays and Wednesday if the Borden student is on.

The bus driver will make sure all kids on their list are on the bus, if not, the driver will radio the bus garage and we will phone the school and find out if the student called in absent that day.  It is up to the parents to phone into the school and let them know if they will be absent for band.  It is also up to the parents to let the driver know if they will be picking their child up from band.

Please keep in mind these times back to the school are approximate times only.  The drivers have said there can be a 15 minute difference some days!
