An Ohio school bus driver has lost her job after posting a photo of herself with an alcoholic beverage on Facebook while on the job.
The driver stated there were no students on the bus and her shift was over. However, her employer, school transportation company First Student, investigated the matter immediately upon learning of the incident and has since terminated her.
A statement from the company read, in part: “We understand and share in the concern this photo has caused. We are incredibly disappointed by our driver’s actions.
“While we have determined the photo was taken at the end of the driver’s route, that no students were on board and that the bottle was unopened, this behavior is completely unacceptable. Behavior such as this does not align with company policy and the high standards First Student strives for in all we do.”
The school district is working with the company to complete the investigation.
