Lakeland Connect received a statement from SPRED concerning the child left on the bus. We also spoke with his grandmother as she expressed her frustration and fear with St. Paul Education.
The good Samaritan who picked the child up has been found thanks to a Lakeland Connect viewer and we are hoping to arrange a meeting between the grandmother and him soon so she can say thank you in person for keeping her family safe.
