My little one is supposed to take the bus next year and I am petrified! I am so worried he will get on the wrong bus or get left on the bus or get off at the wrong stop... it scares me! I know a lot of people let their kids take the bus and I probably will too, but this story HOI 19 ran today is making me lean towards carpooling!
Two school district employees in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois have been suspended after a pre-schooler was left on a bus for thirty minutes yesterday.
Unit 5 Superintendent Gary Neihaus says an employee discovered the child yesterday in the bus barn during a routine inspection. A bus driver and bus monitor are both out of work until a unit five investigation is finished.
In a press release, Neihaus says the employees did not follow procedure and search the bus at the end of their route. He says the child was sent home and the district apologized to his family.
Neihaus says the district is taking steps to prevent this from happening again.
Do you or will you let your kids ride the bus?
