STRATFORD - Some parents in Stratford say something must be done after a new bus driver dropped off a kindergartener early when no one was waiting at the stop.

The child stood alone crying until a woman came to help.  
     
The mother says she then got a call from that woman saying she had her son.

The school district's superintendent says as a courtesy, bus drivers can keep a student on the bus if there is no one to pick them up.  They say it is not a requirement and parents should make arrangements to get to the stop on time.
