Bus Driver Told Girl Santa is Fake: Dad

Dad filed a complaint against the bus driver last week.

A Norwalk dad is calling his child's bus driver a Grinch after her bus driver allegedly told her Santa Claus is fake and Jesus Christ was not born on Christmas.

Louis Seeley said he filed a complaint last Wednesday after his 8-year-old came home and reported the comments to him.

Norwalk schools and the bus company, First Student, are looking into the allegations.

A spokeswoman for First Student said they do not believe the conversation occurred as it was first reported.

The bus driver told them the girl overheard the driver's conversation with other students about what she called "the nature of gift-giving" during the holidays, The Hour newspaper reports.

Norwalk schools' chief operating officer told The Hour that he could not discuss the allegations because the investigation was still open.
