Update: Boston Police find missing 5-year-old girl

BOSTON — 10:35 p.m. Update: A spokesperson from the Match Charter Public School released the following statement:

“During dismissal today, one of our students, who was supposed to be picked up by her mother, was mistakenly placed on a school bus. School administrators determined which bus she was placed on, notified the Boston Police and the Boston Public Schools, and were able to locate her and reunite her with her family.

There is no excuse for this incident. We have met with the child’s family and have expressed our deep regret. We are immediately instituting improvements to our arrival and dismissal procedures, including confirming the accuracy of every child’s dismissal plan, adjusting dismissal staffing, and improving transition procedures at all grade levels.

The safety of all students is our utmost priority, and we are committed to ensuring stronger processes moving forward.”
