3-year-old left alone on Poulsbo school bus

The Associated Press

POULSBO — A 3-year-old girl was left alone for about half an hour on a school bus in Poulsbo before she was found.

She had failed to get off at her preschool and was left on the bus at the lot for the North Kitsap School District.

A spokeswoman says the driver should have walked through the bus Wednesday morning after parking.

The Kitsap Sun reports the driver is on administrative leave for an investigation.

The girl was found by another driver preparing the bus for another run.

The girls’ parents say it will be some time before they put her on a school bus again.
