The boy, who participates in the Casper after-school program at School 27 in the Heights, went missing at around 3 p.m. shortly after the rest of the school’s students were dismissed for the day, according to Maryann Dickar, a spokeswoman for the Jersey City Public Schools.
The student’s teacher brought him to the Casper program when school let out at 2:45 p.m. and put him on a line of students going to the cafeteria to receive their snack, Dickar wrote in an email to The Jersey Journal.
A teacher’s aide was receiving the students on line while the teacher took her non-Casper students to their buses. But when the teacher returned to the cafeteria at 3 p.m. she noticed the 8-year-old boy was missing, Dickar said.
