A student at Hope Christian School was left on a bus on Thursday.

The family indicated the student had been put on the Go Riteway Bus.

This story starts at 5:45 AM when a driver from Go Riteway Bus Company picked up this student for the school day.

When the other students were dropped off the driver did not walk to the back of the bus to make sure all the kids had made it off.

The student stayed asleep on one of the seats.

A bus company spokesperson said they will be re-emphasizing their triple check system to make sure kids are not left on the bus.

The actual discovery that the child was missing came from the school officials.
