Seven year old left on school bus

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (WFLX) The St. Lucie County School District is still trying to figure out how an elementary student was left on a school bus for most of the day without anyone knowing.

The child was supposed to be dropped off at Parkway Elementary, but he fell asleep on the bus and woke up at the district's transportation depot.

The seven-year-old was found Monday afternoon when the driver checked the bus.

The childs father didn't know his son wasn't at school until Parkway's principal called to explain the situation.

The school district has a policy where drivers need to check their buses before they leave and after they arrive back at the depot.
