A Toledo Public Schools bus driver and an aide were suspended without pay after a 4-year-old preschool pupil was not dropped off at day care and was found sleeping on the bus after the route was finished, school officials said yesterday.
Connie Blomme, the driver, was suspended without pay for 28 days, and the aide, Robert Martinez, was suspended without pay for 21 days. The incident occurred Tuesday, and their disciplinary hearings were held Wednesday, district spokeswoman Jane Bruss said.
The child, a pupil at Cherry Elementary School's preschool, was not harmed.
