A school bus driver is out of a job after refusing to let students open the bus's windows on a hot day.

A video recently released showed the driver in Everett, Washington refusing to let children open the windows even though one girl apparently passed out.

Her excuse? It was a borrowed bus and opening the windows would cause an alarm to go off.

At one point, the driver stopped to let a student out, even though it wasn't their regular stop.

School officials said the driver made two mistakes - not opening the windows and making the unscheduled stop.

The incident happened in April, but officials just released video of the incident.
