Bus Driver Suspended after First Grader Walks Home

It is a story that could have had a much different ending, but fortunately a good samaritan helped a first grader get home safely after her bus driver dropped her off at the wrong stop Tuesday.

The first grader from Berne Elementary School had to walk alone on the road until she was picked up by someone her parents did not know, and then dropped off at home.

The bus driver has been suspended without pay while the investigation continues.

Meantime, the superintendent of Berne-Knox-Westerlo released a statement Wednesday, saying, “we are currently examining transportation policies to see if adjustments are needed to ensure this never happens again.”
