Child left on Region 8 school bus, school investigating

CORNING, AR (KAIT) – A 5-year-old is safe and sound after being left on a Region 8 school bus for almost 30 minutes.

According to Corning School Superintendent J.M. Edington, the 5-year-old was left on the school bus Tuesday morning. The bus driver had failed to sweep the bus at the end of the morning to make sure all the children were off.

A teacher then found the child about 30 minutes later according to the Elementary School Principal. The child was not harmed.

Edington tells Region 8 News that the matter was being handled internally but did not tell Region 8 News what, if any, discipline was taken against the school bus driver.

Region 8 News will continue to track this story and bring you any updates as soon as they become available.
