LONGVIEW, Texas (KETK) – East Texas Montessori Prep Academy is a school for children 3-6 years of age. According to the district, on Monday afternoon, a bus picking up children from the school had mechanical issues causing a delay in drop off. 'I didn't know where he was, where he could be, why he had not made it,' said Zakiya Stewart, concerned parent. Zakiya Stewart's son, Zailen Heath, who is 5-years-old, says something scary happened on his first day of riding the bus. 'I received a phone call at 5:59, 6 o'clock asking me was he at school, did he go to school today, and was he supposed to be going to his after school program,' said Stewart.
