Oops, Wrong School

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (March 14, 2014) A kindergartner in Schenectady, N.Y., spent an entire day at the wrong school after getting on the wrong bus, school officials said.

The series of errors started Wednesday morning when the 5-year-old girl boarded the wrong bus, which was driven by a substitute driver, school officials said.

At the school, teachers were expecting a new first-grader and asked the girl if she was that student.

The girl said she was and spent the day answering to the no-show first-grader's name.

The mistake wasn't discovered until the kindergartner's mother called the school to report that her daughter didn't get off the bus that afternoon.

School officials say they found the girl a short time later.

The district says it's re-examining its bus and new student procedures.
