Child Left On Bus
Four-year-old Jordan Williams boarded a Lincoln Public Schools Bus to ride the 6 blocks to school. But on the way, he fell asleep. The driver, not noticing the boy, proceeded to the bus yard, where he was left inside the bus for nearly 30 minutes. Fortunately, another bus driver heard the boys cries and got him out safely. LPS admits that policy was not followed. That policy states that a bus be checked once kids are dropped off at school and once again once it's parked at the bus yard. But, they point out that this case is a rare instance, and the matter has been dealt with appropriately.
