Loxahatchee Groves Elementary student left alone on bus

LOXAHATCHEE GROVES, FL (WFLX) - The Palm Beach County School Board is investigating the circumstances that led to a child being left alone on a bus Thursday morning.

According to a spokesperson with the school district, the bus driver had dropped students off at Loxahatchee Groves Elementary and returned to the lot accompanied by an attendant.

Some time later, a bus mechanic at the school bus lot heard crying and found a child on the bus alone.

Both the driver and the attendant are required to do a final sweep of the bus to make sure no children are left behind.

The school district is looking into what happened. In the meantime, the driver and attendant have both been placed in other positions that require no interaction with children.
