LAKEWOOD - The first day of kindergarten can be unnerving for parents, but a school bus mix-up in Lakewood made it even more scary as nearly 30 kindergarteners were sent home on the wrong school bus.

Police say the kindergarteners from the Spruce Street School were put on the wrong bus as a result of disorganization and miscommunication between the school district, the bus companies and, in some cases, the parents.

At least four different bus companies pick up and drop off students to and from the school. The school's superintendent insists that the problem has been corrected.
