Oldham Co. preschooler left alone on bus at least 3 hours

BUCKNER, KY (WAVE) - Officials with Oldham County Schools are investigating an incident in which a preschool student was left alone on a bus for at least three hours on Monday.

According to Oldham County Schools spokeswoman Tracy Harris, the child had been put on the school bus by a parent for transport to the afternoon session at Oldham County Preschool, which shares a campus with Buckner Elementary School and Oldham Middle School. The child wasn't at the preschool when the parent tried to pick up the child later in the day. The parents notified the school system, and the child was located on the bus at a transportation compound.

Harris said district policy requires bus drivers to check their vehicles before exiting. The driver involved in this incident was not on the job on Tuesday, according to Harris.
