Fri., 12:48pm: Child found sleeping, abandoned on Niles school bus

NILES — The Niles School District is investigating an incident involving a student who was found sleeping on a bus.

A woman who would identify herself only as a concerned parent said the elementary school child was found sleeping on a bus inside the bus garage after the other children had been taken home. She said the driver was unaware of the child and had already left the garage when workers inside the garage found the child.

Interim superintendent Frank Danso said he was notified of the incident late Thursday and was on his way to a meeting with school officials Friday afternoon regarding the incident.
