- Bus service is provided from Parksville (North Bus), Ladysmith (South Bus) in partnership with the Nanaimo Christian School (“NCS”) and Central Nanaimo (Central Bus).
- Buses run every school day; in case of bad weather listen to The Wave FM (102.3 FM in Nanaimo or 99.9 FM in Parksville) or check www.aspengroveschool.ca for school closures.
- The busses are mechanically serviced on a regular basis, but occasionally mechanical break-downs are unavoidable. NCS has an arrangement with School District 68 to provide a back-up bus in case of emergency; however, that is subject to availability and if we do have a mechanical problem that interferes with before or after school busing, parents will be notified by phone.
- All Students must abide by the Bus Rider Rules.
- The full Aspengrove Student code of conduct will be in effect during transportation time.
