Bus attendant misses sleeping kid

Following an incident last week when a 4-year-old got left on a school bus that was dropping students off at Pocomoke Elementary, the Worcester County Public School System is taking steps to prevent a similar occurrence in the future.

Carrie Sterrs, public relations coordinator for Worcester County Schools, said video footage showed the pre-K student taking her seat on the bus and shortly thereafter lying down to sleep. When the bus arrived at Pocomoke Elementary School, the girl was asleep while an attendant on the back of the bus began to usher students off, Sterrs said.

“She’s going from seat to seat and then something occurs outside of the bus that drew her attention,” she said. “While she was looking out the window at the students outside of the bus she had passed that seat.”

I actually had this same exact thing happen to me when I was younger. Fell asleep on the bus and missed my stop at the elementary school. Woke up on the bus at the middle school and had to be taken back to the elementary school.

When I was in school, my bus was bumpy and kids were loud. No way I could have fallen asleep.
