Dropped off in an unfamiliar neighborhood a mile from his home Friday afternoon, Davion Conley, a kindergartner at Hazel Dell Elementary School, had no idea where he was.
A mix-up at the school had placed him on the wrong bus, and at the end of the route, Davion, 5, apparently was told to get off with the rest of the remaining pupils.
Told to get off? If drivers have extra kids at the end, they have to dump them off at the end of the line?
I don’t know any more about the incident than what’s in the newspaper account, but it sounds like maybe the school bus driver dropped the ball here too. I know it’s early in the school year and the driver probably doesn’t know all the kids on their route yet, but telling a kid he has to get off just because it’s the end of that route seems odd to me. I suspect the kid didn’t speak up about it not being his stop, but still.
