It’s every parents’ nightmare. Mom pulled up to the elementary school to pick up her 6 year old only he wasn’t there. He was supposed to wait for his mother, but instead, he got on a school bus, sat down, and took an hour long ride. The little boy was so frightened, he didn’t know what to do. His mom was franticly looking for him at the school.
That’s what happened to Chandra Russey-McCormick and her son Zyic on Monday at Landmark Elementary, in the Pulaski County Special School District in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The school says they knew the little boy got on the school bus. Mom says she let the school know multiple times that she would be picking him up. She wants to know why Zyic was on the bus and the principal blames her for not letting the school know she would be picking him up.
To give credit where credit is due, as upsetting as this incident is to Zyic’s mom, this is the first time I’ve heard of a school losing a child. Either I have my head in the sand, or schools are really good at getting children where they need to be.
Be careful out there.
