UPDATED: B-W Kindergartener Left on School Bus
Boy woke up at the garage. He was never without adult supervision.
A 5-year-old McAnnulty Elementary School student fell asleep on a Baldwin-Whitehall School District bus on his way to school on Wednesday morning and awoke to find himself at the district's bus garage.
WPXI is reporting that the bus's driver did not know that the boy, a kindergartener, failed to get off of the bus at McAnnulty that morning.
B-W School District Superintendent Dr. Lawrence C. Korchnak told WPXI that the boy was discovered shortly later at the Wallace Building garage when the driver was checking on the bus's emergency door locks.
The driver eventually brought the boy to McAnnulty, and district officials contacted his parents. However, it is not known which of those actions occurred first.
"The district is relieved that the child was never beyond the scope of adult supervision," Korchnak told the Baldwin-Whitehall Patch. "However, we are reviewing our procedures and investigating the possibility of disciplinary action."
