  • I used to be in college with one of my kids was that age and missed the bus once because my professor kept us long. The school knew I was a college student though and they drove him back to the school then called me. By then I was already at the school so embarressed but they knew it was not my fault. They said under my circumstances nothing would have been done bc they knew I was running late but under normal ones they contact the emergency contact person and if no one is answering they call CPS and call it abandonment.

  • Im not POSITIVE...but I think they call either the cops or CPS. Im not 100% so I would call the school and find out or GO TO THE MOM

  • Child protective services. Also I have heard that they willalso do that in the event you are continuously late on picking your child up from school.
