SAVOY — A student who apparently got on the wrong bus following the first day of school on Monday was returned to the school after the bus driver realized she didn't belong on the bus.
Champaign school district spokeswoman Stephanie Stuart said that a girl attending Carrie Busey School in Savoy stepped on an incorrect bus after classes ended on Monday.
"It was a matter of first-day-of-school confusion," Stuart said. "We have a system in place to make sure the students get on the right bus, but we aren't sure what happened in the case of this student."
Once the bus driver realized the girl was on the incorrect bus, Stuart said, the driver took the girl back to Carrie Busey School to be reunited with her family.
Stuart didn't have information on how old the girl was.
