A J.D. Clifton Head Start student is out of the hospital and an investigation has been launched after the toddler was left unattended on a Calcasieu Parish school bus for several hours.
Officials say 3-year-old Darren St. Romain got on the bus with his twin brother at about 7 a.m. Wednesday but did not get off with the other students when they were dropped off at school. Darren's mother, Yessenia Williams, said the bus driver found Darren on the bus at about 2 p.m.
Williams said the child was dehydrated with a lowered temperature but suffered no other health concerns.
Superintendent Wayne Savoy tells The American Press the bus driver and bus monitor have been suspended, and the school system's risk management and transportation departments will investigate the matter.
