School District responds after kindergartner mix-up

Posted: Updated:
Janeya Nevins, 5, was not in her kindergarten classroom Thursday. Her mother Patricia Rodriguez wanted to to keep her close, after quite a scare on Wednesday.

"It's still upsetting to me. I look at her and I could still cry," Rodriguez said.

For nearly three hours, Rodriguez said her world was turned up side down. She put her daughter on a school bus in the morning, but she was nowhere to be found that afternoon.
