This is not in my district, but one in a neighboring area. It is just the saddest thing I've read. A 4 year old little boy was hit and killed right in front of the school -- with other students looking on! His mother was a teacher at that school! http://hamptonroads.com/2009/01/4yearold-meme-was-full-energy-brought-lot-joy We have no idea what really happened, and won't until the investigation is complete. I'm glad the media isn't jumping to any conclusions -- so many times people instantly blame the bus driver, or blame the teacher, or blame the parent, or blame the child, without knowing the facts or details. I'm so glad my school doesn't allow PreKs to ride the bus. Even the Ks have to be walked to the bus and actually put on the first step of the bus by their teacher. No Ks are dismissed until all of the buses have arrived and are parked -- so there is no way a K could get hit by a bus while boarding the buses. My heart goes out to that little darling's family.
