Special-needs student left on bus


MANTECA, Calif. — A special-needs students was left on a bus at Manteca Unified School District’s transportation facility, and an official said the incident was a “good wake-up call,” FOX40 News reports.

Assistant Superintendent of Personnel Services Don Halseth told the news source that the student apparently fell asleep on the bus and was not visible to the driver when the bus returned to the district. Halseth said the girl had been on the bus for about an hour when a maintenance worker discovered her.

The girl was uninjured, but Halseth said the bus driver was “very concerned” by the incident. He also said that it was a good wake-up call for all drivers in the district.

this is why parents have a hard time trusting schools. what if? we worry all the time. there should not be a reminder! the driver should always go to the back of the bus!

Being a former school bus driver I always walked to the back of the bus after everyone is supposed to have gotten off so that this never happened on my watch. It's supposed to be mandatory for every post trip. ThaNk God it wan't HOT (LIKE 100 DEGREES).
