Bus drivers take day off

Boston (AP/WBZ Newsroom) -- Boston School Superintendent Carol Johnson is apologizing to parents and students who were left out in the cold Monday morning.

About 680 public school students were left at bus stops after 70 drivers called in sick or took personal days off.

Johnson calls the high number of absences "very problematic." Those students won't be penalized if they missed school.

Johnson tells WBZ Newsradio1030 she wants a review and documentation explaining the absences.

I'm so glad I don't take the bus anymore. Yeah... Walking to school is so much fun. Especially walking on ice.
