6-year-old girl put on wrong school bus twice from Minneapolis elementary school

Jomyra Mckenzie, 6, has been put on the wrong school bus twice from Bancroft Elementary in Minneapolis. Her mother, Ciare is fed up with the school district and wants answers.

Wednesday afternoon Jomyra's bus driver left her on the corner of 37th and Snelling, instead of at the Sunshine Tree Child Development Center where she was supposed to be.

As usual, Ciare went to the daycare to pick up her daughter to find she wasn't there.

"I go to the day care my daughter's not here where is she?"

"She's supposed to get off the bus from school to the daycare."

Fortunately, just like the last time this happened a neighbor heard Jomyra's cries as she walked across the street and through an alley alone.

"I heard somebody yelling I want my mommy, I want my mommy, I want my mommy!"

Neighbors, Andre Perkins and Shayla Johnson are also fed up.

"When I got up I looked out the window and I said oh no, not again!"

"How do you do this twice in a row, this really just doesn't sit well with me, I have a 5-year-old getting ready to start kindergarten in September."

When Ciare asked for an explanation from the school she was told, "Oh, it's no big deal, it's no big deal it happens all the time."

Ciare has pulled her daughter from Bancroft for good and her neighbor plans to do the same.

The Interim communications director at Minneapolis Public Schools told Fox 9, no comment and student data privacy laws are the reason. She added however student safety is a top priority for the district and in cases where a student is not placed on the correct bus, they take full responsibility.
