ROCHESTER — A six-year-old Rochester girl was left on the steps of her Old Dover Road home - alone and crying - because of a paperwork mix-up on her first day of school.
Melissa Shaw, experienced this nightmare last week when her daughter, Aerianna, was supposed to be picked up from William Allen School on her first day by the YMCA of Strafford County's after-school bus at about 3 p.m. - but when her father showed up, she was not there, according to Fosters.
The school would not release any information to the father. It wasn't until the school called Shaw in order to release information to the grandfather, who showed up at the school, that she was informed of the incident.
Shaw told Fosters that her daughter cried so much she had fallen asleep on the porch waiting for someone to see her. Aerianna's biggest fear has always been being left alone, and she continues to have anxiety about the incident.
The school has chalked this incident up to a colossal mix-up in paper work between them and the YMCA. They are attempting to move past the problem and make sure it does not happen again, but Shaw will not let it stop at that. The mother has started advocating to change the school's policy on which students are allowed to get off the bus without an adult there to greet them, Foster's reports.
Shaw has transferred her daughter to School Street School, where they have an after-school daycare program available.
