HOPEDALE – A Harrison Hills City Schools employee was fired on Monday after a preschooler was left on a school bus. The youngster apparently was found after the bus returned to the main garage in Cadiz, but officials have said the child was on the bus for a brief period and it was an isolated incident.

School board members held a disciplinary hearing with the bus driver, the district’s attorney and representatives of the Ohio Association of Public School Employees Local 507. The board voted unanimously for the dismissal and passed a resolution stating findings for their decision. Details concerning the resolution and decision are featured in the April 16 print edition of the Harrison News-Herald.
