Bus Information >> PSWBand Bus Info.pdf
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.
Bus Drivers – Tara Jabouf (Borden, Langham, Dalmeny), Gerry Sherling (Delisle, Vanscoy), Dave Park (Perdue).
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.
