Two Brunswick County school district employees have resigned following an incident in which a sleeping first-grader was left on a school bus.
Bus driver Evelyn Miller and her monitor, Roswitha Delts, both handed in their resignations–on May 18 and 22, respectively, according to district spokeswoman Jessica Swencki. Miller and Delts had been on administrative leave since mid-May while the district investigated the discovery of a sleeping child left on the bus.
Miller’s daily route included an early run for Cedar Grove Middle School, then a second run for Virginia Williamson Elementary School. After dropping students at Virginia Williamson, the bus would return to Cedar Grove.
It was there that Miller reportedly discovered the first-grade girl asleep on the bus. The student was taken back to Virginia Williamson, where she was assessed by the school nurse and the district began an investigation into the matter.
