I would sue the NL school district if my three year old child was left behind on a school bus for "most" of the day. That family is so lucky that this didn't happen when the temperatures were hotter outside, or this story might have had a tragic ending. This is a terrifying story.

Watch out, people on here will call you a dirty liberal for typing the word sue and will argue with you about your opinion.

Sue Sue Sue! You are what is wrong with the world today. It's all about money to win from a lawsuit. Yes this is something that needs to be addressed but maybe the parents shouldn't keep little Johnny up all night so he doesn't sleep on the school bus which is what I am assuming happened. Regardless of the circumstances that lead to the student being left behind you are a perfect example of what is wrong with this country! Go raise hell and maybe even go as far as to see the person responsible is disciplined or even fired, but sue? Your a joke

Why is a 3 year old on a school bus anyways? What parents have such disregard for their "precious" child, as to let him/her ride alone on a school bus at such a young age? I don't want to hear about difficulties, scheduling, ect... That's all bs. If a 3 year old is going to school/daycare/babysitter whatever, then the parents needs to nut up, and leave a little early to take care of that child themselves. 3 years old is far to young of a child to expect it to care for itself in this fashion. I don't care if that little person is the Anne Frank of bus riders, it's too young.

First of all if the child is in early childhood they have a right to use the bus. Second of all....I thought it was mandatory for a bus driver to walk "check" their bus before leaving it to prevent this kind of thing from happening.

that is not the first time it has happen. we know for a fact it has happen to a nephew years ago at same school district. he was found near bus barn wondering around where he woke up an got off an went looking for someone an he was lost .someone saw him an he told them what school building he went to . it was near 100 degrees that morning . he was real sweaty an miracle he was still alive with weather like that . he was older at the time. the school did say they were sorry for their mistake an said it would never happen again an they would walk through the buses checking for kids before they left the buses anymore. but we see it has .

The driver and monitor were both fired on the spot or did you not want to put that in there? Also, Mr Dawson contacted everyone from CPS to the police to the school board members about it and went to the child's home to check on him. BAD mistake that shouldn't have been made. I hope all drivers/ monitors from every school will learn from this and triple check those busses.

My thought exactly. And why is a three year old in school? I would call that day care.

That's funny, I've lived in Texas all my life and have never see it hit 100 degrees in the morning. Sounds like BS to me.

What I would say if I were Mr. Dawson:

"Perpertrators have been fired. Every one of my employees know, if you screw up, start looking for another job.

Besides, of all accidents, we love this one. Nobody was hurt or tramatized. And when we found the child, he had a smile on his face. The bus wasn’t on a hill in desolate heat or cold. The bus was locked so the child couldn’t get out into traffic or under a bus for an unsuspecting driver. He wasn’t molested by a maintenance man or found by some bad boys. He may have been hungry and diaper spent but those are not life threatening. Nobody was killed or injured. Of all accidents, we’ll take this one.

We have apologized to the parents. We are not perfect, no school district is. We had a mistake made at our school and we are going to try to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

It would be welcome if other schools in the district were to involve themselves more with special needs kids instead of the single coop school system we have now. Unfortunately after the parents sue us and I have to ban them, they will have no other place to send their special needs child in this county.

We still are a financial sound school system with high quality teachers that ensure proper standards in academic meterics are met. We have great athletic and band programs. And for the most part, if your kids are at this school, they are safe.

We are doing our best every day."

Amazing how some are trying to blame the victim. Thankfully the irresponsible adults that allowed this to happen have been fired.

Where did Special needs come in? Paris has a rather large Special Education department. And as I understand it, North Lamar, Chisum and other 'smaller' schools are all Co-op, so since North Lamar is the central area campus for the Co-op, they have the Sped classes.

mistakes do happen . prayers for all involved to get through this . an thanks to school for stepping up an taking proper steps that needed to take place because it was not one but two people to check the bus .

The aide was at fault it was her responsibility to make sure all the children were off the bus and she didn't do it. The drivers job is to drive the bus..but it is ultimately his responsibility on the safety of all the children who ride his bus. The driver was devastated to learn what had happened and feels awful about it. Mistakes happen everyday and thankfully this mistake turned out ok but the right steps were taken when both parties involved were let go.
