    A bus driver has been fired after officials say an open can of
    beer was spotted as he transported elementary school students in

    Fourth and fifth-grade students at Lincoln Elementary School in
    Green Bay were traveling back from a field trip in Madison when
    one of the students discovered the beer can “under the bus
    driver’s seat,” according to a letter the school’s principal
    sent to parents.

    The bus driver, employed by Lamers Bus Lines, did not smell of
    alcohol, nor did teachers report any impaired driving, the
    principal said. But when the bus arrived back at the school, the
    driver admitted to police he drank beer as the students were at
    their field trip, according to the principal.

    WLUK reported the bus driver was arrested and accused of driving
    while impaired. Police said his blood alcohol level was above
    .04, which is the legal limit for driving a commercial motor
    vehicle, according to WLUK.

    The driver’s name has not been announced.

    Lamers Bus Lines said it is cooperating with the school district
    and the Green Bay Police Department in its investigation.

    “Lamers Bus Lines has a zero-tolerance policy for drugs and
    alcohol, and the driver has been terminated, effective
    immediately,” a spokesperson said in a statement to McClatchy

    Adam Gloudemans, Lincoln Elementary’s principal, told parents
    the school “regret(s) that this situation occurred.”

    “Please know that student safety is our highest priority and we
    will review safety protocols with Lamers,” Gloudemans said.
