Mom: McLendon Elementary Children Left Asleep on Bus
Parent Shawna Blackwood said her two kindergartners were left on the bus after they fell asleep.
How upset would you be if this happened to your children?
A parent at McLendon Elementary School said her two kindergartners were left on the bus – and weren't let off at the bus stop – after they fell asleep in their seats, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Now the DeKalb County School System is coming down on the bus driver (and some other employees as well, possibly).
From the story:
The Blackwoods imagined their 5-year-olds wandering the streets — alone, afraid and lost. But soon, they had another reason to cry. The shouting apparently awakened one of the children: "That's when my niece raised her head and said, 'auntie, I'm right here."
Little Giselle Blake had been sleeping. Adelaide Blackwood's son, Joshua, was still snoozing by her side, and missed the whole thing. As far as he knew, it was a normal first day of school.
