A frustrated mother has spoken out after her young daughter was left at the wrong stop by her school’s bus driver.
Demanding immediate answers and action from the Jefferson Hills School District, Shannon McBurney from Jefferson Hills, Pennsylvania, spoke out and revealed how her 5-year-old daughter’s bus driver dropped the little girl off at the wrong stop.
According to the upset mom, little Evelyn was very excited to go to school for the first time ever. As she insisted, she wanted to take the school bus on the way home even though Shannon dropped her off at school in the morning.
“She had me take a million pictures of her. She got herself up at 6:30 in the morning. I dropped her off in the morning. She really wanted to take the bus home to see if her friends were on it,” McBurney recalled.
Patiently waiting at the stop where Evelyn should be dropped off, Shannon got more worried by the minute as her daughter never showed up.
“I started to get worried and then called the school and found out that she was already dropped off at a different location,” she added.
“I was terrified. I just rushed here as quick as I could. When they found her they said that she was in tears.”
As the mother insisted, the 5-year-old student was dropped off alongside a busy even though there were no sidewalks or parents in sight.
Following the incident, the school district confirmed that they are aware of what had happened and reassured the public that they are working with the transportation partner to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
“We are aware that one of our students was dropped off at the wrong stop in their neighborhood yesterday and are currently working with Durham Transportation to ensure this never happens again,” district officials said in a statement obtained by Channel 11.
“We are extremely concerned and unsettled that such a thing would happen. We are extremely grateful that the student was able to be returned to their parents safely.”
