By: Ashlei KingSAN ANTONIO -- As the first week of school wrapped up, one mother demanded answers after she said her son was put on the wrong bus."I was crying because I wanted my sister on the bus, but I was on the wrong bus," Nathaniel Fugate said.That is what Nathaniel remembered about his first day of the first grade.His mother, Jessica Fugate, said she spent the day worrying about Nathaniel’s younger sister who was starting Pre-K, but once school was over, she quickly realized her worries were for the wrong child."The bus driver recognized me from last year and he's like 'You have a little boy right?' I said ‘Yeah' and he's like 'He's not on here.' I said, 'Are you kidding me?'” Jessica said.Southside Independent School District told FOX San Antonio there was an overflow on her son's bus, so teachers put him on a different bus that also went to the same neighborhood.Jessica said it took nearly three hours to find her son."It's pretty tough because that's your baby and you want to make sure they're good and taken care of and you're trusting people you've never met before with your own child,” Jessica said.FOX San Antonio checked with districts around Bexar County to see if they have experienced similar issues during the beginning of the school year. Judson Independent School District said two kindergarten students ended up on the wrong bus on the first day of school. Northside did not specify how many kids were placed on the wrong bus, but said each child made it home safely."School districts across the county are doing their best to get your children to and from school safely every single day. That really is their mission,” Northside ISD Spokesperson Pascual Gonzalez said.Gonzalez said there are a number of factors that contribute to mishaps like these in his district."The first week of school is just tough on everybody,” he said. “Kids don't know schedules. Parents don't schedules. Bus drivers don't know their kids on their bus.”The districts FOX San Antonio spoke with said these type of issues are typically worked out within the first ten days of school.
