Aransas Pass School Bus Leaves Five-Year Old at Wrong Stop

Posted: Updated:
ARANSAS PASS (Kiii News) -

It was a scary first week of school for a five-year old Aransas Pass student. A little girl in kindergarten was reportedly dropped off at the wrong house on her school bus route.

According to the girl's father, she was dropped off about a mile to a mile and a half away from home. School officials are not sure exactly what type of action, if any, will be taken.

"Even though she was crying and saying, 'This ain't my house,' she was still let off," said Justin Keene, the five-year old's father. "What if there was a sex predator or kidnapper? She's only five. She doesn't know where her house is, or how to get home."

Keene said his daughter was wandering around lost for about 10-15 minutes before a neighbor spotted her. They called the school and took her back to the campus, where Keene later picked her up.

He immediately contacted the transportation supervisor for Aransas Pass Independent School District. He said the only explanation he received was that the bus driver had mistaken his daughter for another student.

The district's superintendent, Dr. Royce Avery, said he is looking into the situation, but has a little more work to do before he decides what needs to happen.

"I plan on moving swiftly and quickly to resolve this, to make sure this incident doesn't happen again," Avery said.

Avery said he should know in the next couple of days whether the bus driver or bus monitor will face any disciplinary action.
