Mother said First Student didn't know daughter was on bus

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

It was another day of school and another day of issues for school buses in Savannah-Chatham County.

One very upset mother said First Student couldn't find her daughter who was supposed to be on the bus.

It was the first day four-year-old Saminah Young was riding the bus, so when the bus didn't show up, her mother called First Student. First Student said her daughter was not on the bus, but according to her school, the little girl was on the bus.

After an hour and a half of panicking, First Student called Keeshauna Burgess saying they found her daughter and that she was on the bus. When the bus driver finally got there, he said Young was sitting behind him the whole time, but he didn't have her on his roster.

"Every child is not going to be on their roster sheet, and if the child is not on their roster sheet, you should get up and check," Burgess said. "I know you see them as they come in. At least write it down. Write their names down, this is the children that came on the bus.

Burgess said her daughter was wearing a nametag, but she has made big colorful signs that she will now hang around her daughter's neck with all of her information in case this should happen again.

Burgess said they are looking into filing a complaint. Her daughter rode the school bus on Tuesday and is praying for a better experience.
