Unbelievable. A 3-year-old girl stayed from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the school bus that took her to her nursery school. In the columns of Parisian, her parents confided that she no longer wants to return to school.
It is an unimaginable scene. A 3-year-old girl was forgotten on a school bus last Thursday in Eure-et-Loir for 8 hours. Very upset, the parents confided in the Parisian, and affirm that the child is “shocked”. “She doesn’t want to go to school anymore, even by car. She’s been crying for a week.” explained his mother. While little Clémence returned to school two weeks ago in the nursery school of Châteauneuf-en-Thymerais, she took the school bus with her 6-year-old brother like every day. Only that day, she didn’t go to school…
The bus driver found the girl at 4:30 p.m. when he returned to pick up the school in the afternoon. “She peed on herself and she also threw up”, revealed his mother, angrily. While the school did not notify the child’s parents of his absence, the school bus attendant also did not check the bus at the end of the ride. “There has been a chain of human dysfunctions”recognized Frédéric Giroux, vice-presidents in charge of mobility, the development of community space and public procurement for the Pays de Dreux agglomeration.
“The protocol will be improved”
The Chosen One also explained that a meeting had taken place between parents, teachers, local elected officials and the transport company: “The parents asked all their questions and we answered them in complete transparency, in a peaceful atmosphere”, he asserted. But that’s not all. Fédéric Giroux also assured that “Sanctions will be taken and the transport protocol of the community of municipalities will be completed and improved”. A new measure has even been put in place. From now on, the central station will contact each driver and inspect all vehicles returned to the depot after each school tour.
