The bus driver and the monitor who were the subject of an internal investigation by the Calcasieu Parish School Board after being accused of leaving a 3-year-old on a school bus for hours are no longer employed by the school system.

That's according to Gary Anderson, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources/Auxiliary Service with the Calcasieu Parish School Board.

The incident reportedly happened Jan. 16.

The child was from J.D. Clifton Head Start and was reportedly left on the bus for seven hours.

Superintendent Wayne Savoy told KPLC following the incident that there are protocols in place to prevent situations like the Jan. 16 one from happening.

Savoy said school officials will be examining the situation with the school system's risk management and transportation personnel.
