School says bus mishap won't recur


A temporary Goldendale School District bus driver missed a child at a pick-up point on Highway 97 last month, leading to the child having to run to catch the bus when it stopped some yards down.

“It’s absolutely unacceptable,” said the child’s irate parent. “It’s incredibly dangerous.”

The district acknowledged the incident and said the driver reported it immediately upon return. The driver said the child was not at the stop when the bus pulled away. The district says it has implemented new safeguards to ensure this does not happen again.
