BELDING, Mich. (WZZM) - A Belding Middle School bus driver was suspended and her route changed after leaving a preschooler sleeping on a school bus while she had lunch.
The incident happened last week.
The superintendent of schools tells WZZM 13 News that the driver had dropped off all her students at the school, but the preschooler was asleep, curled up underneath one of the seats of the bus. The student was on the bus unattended for about 30-45 minutes and was not harmed.
The bus driver was suspended and moved to a route that does not include preschoolers. The superintendent says that the driver has been an exemplary driver and employee with no previous problems.
