Pine Tree ISD working to sort out bus confusion

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Pine Tree ISD is working to sort out confusion that left many parents wondering where their children were Monday afternoon when some students didn't show up at home on time.

According to Kevin Brownlee with the Longview Police Department, one child was still reported as missing at 6:20 p.m.

At 7pm, Pine Tree ISD officials told KLTV 7 that every child did make it home safely.

District officials say there were too many students on one of the buses, and for safety reasons had to be put on different buses, which caused delays in some of the children getting home.

They say some of the students also got onto the wrong buses.

District officials say they did notify parents about the delays. They say they expect the bus routes to run smoothly from now on.
