Oklahoma mom says her 5-year-old son got on a school bus and dropped off in a strange neighborhood


OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A 5-year-old boy was reportedly boarded a bus and dropped off in someone else’s neighborhood. That’s what a woman from the Oklahoma City subway tells KFOR who happened to her son this week and now she says the district kicked him out of school.

“Completely scared. It is not something that you want to get a call. “Hey, your kid is missing,” said Ashley Ridge, Crutcho’s parent.

Ridge says her son, Jaxon, was in first grade at Crutcho Public School, when she says something terrifying happened.

“On Monday, the teacher put him on the bus with another white child, who they said thought they belonged together because of their race. He was taken to a neighborhood. He never got on a bus. Taken to a neighborhood and dropped off, ”Ridge said.

Ridge says Jaxon is a car driver and was supposed to be picked up by his father in the carpool lane. But Jaxon never showed up.

“I had to get hateful with the manager who ended up hanging up on me,” Ridge said. “He just said, ‘I’m trying.’ And I just hung up.

Ridge says it took 50 minutes before Jaxon was located. The principal will look for it himself.

But just two days later–

“He has since been kicked out of the school district,” Ridge said. “They said my son’s behavior was bad. My thing is you knew when I put it in school I informed you guys. He’s a five-year-old. He has speech delays. He has a professional delay. You knew he was having problems when I put him in school.

Ridge says Jaxon is on IEP but thinks the district really fired him after the bus situation.

“I think it was kind of like ‘We already screwed up once. So let’s go ahead and clarify the situation for our school district, ”Ridge said.

We reached out to Crutcho for their version of this story. News 4 received an email from the Associate Superintendent, saying:

“I cannot legally comment on this situation, however, the safety of our students is the top priority at Crutcho Public School.”

“They should be ashamed of themselves. No child should have to go through what my son went through there, ”Ridge said.

Jaxon’s mother tells us that they are now looking for a lawyer.
