Driver suspended after student left on school bus

Published: Tue, January 5, 2010 @ 8:55 a.m.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Bus company officials say a Pittsburgh bus driver is suspended after she left a sleeping first grader on the bus.

Officials say Pat Kinnear did not see the boy sleeping on the bus when she dropped off students Monday at Linden Elementary School in Pittsburgh. The boy was found wandering the bus terminal by another driver and returned to school.

Kinnear’s husband, Terry, manages the bus terminal. He says the Roenigk bus company has suspended her while it investigates.

In October, another Roenigk driver was charged with child endangerment after a sleeping kindergartner was left aboard a school bus.

This student may ahve been medicated for hyperactivity and was just enjoing some quality nap time . Usually the other students will wake up the nappers .Now that it has been brought to the bus drivers attention I'm sure that the napper will be given the utmost attention . Put the shcool bus driver back to work !

This is what happens when you outsource your busing from the school district drivers to a company.
By the way, think about it, my own child in kindergarten was 5 years old at this time of the year. His was the 1st stop on the bus route on the way to school, and last stop on the way home. At 3:15 p.m. the bus driver often picked him up asleep and carried him to his mother's arms.
He is now a fully functioning adult. But think about it. 5 years is not a lot of time spent on this earth. You do have to look after them.
