EDMOND, Okla. (KFOR/CNN) -- An Oklahoma mother said she is upset after a school bus driver gave her son an inappropriate note.
“Never in my wildest dreams would I think that this was one of my kids that this would happen to,” said the mom, who asked to remain anonymous to protect the identity of her son.
She said her son is a seventh-grader at Cheyenne Middle School in Edmond, and he brought the note home on Friday.
The mom read aloud some of the note in an interview with KFOR-TV:
I’m writing this note to you because as you know when school is out, there’s really no time to talk, just a quick hug. For some time, I’ve been wanting to talk to you about spending time together with you and I. Maybe with some other friends of yours? What do you think?
I really want to be friends with you and every once in a while, hang out together to play, talk, etc. Yes! I am a grown up, but I like friendship with kids like you. Tell me what you think, no pressure though."
She said the bus driver had asked for a hug earlier in the school year, but she never thought it would go this far.
“He wants to be chummy with my kid. He wants to do things that are unthinkable with my kid,” she said
The mom contacted the school after reading the note on Friday, and the driver was taken off the route two days later. She said she doesn't want a similar incident to happen to another child.
“Nothing’s done until something’s done that’s more irreversible than a note. I am very worried that he’s going to go to other districts,” she said.
The mom also filed a police report. The Edmond School District confirmed that the driver is no longer employed and said that while he did not break the law, his actions were inappropriate.
