RICHLAND, Wash. (AP) -- A Richland man says the school district should have notified him when his 15-year-old daughter was kicked off a school bus for spraying perfume.

Clair Doyle told KNDO (http://bit.ly/uHkNvc ) the way his daughter was treated Thursday wasn't safe.

The girl sprayed perfume on the bus because she said it smelled bad. Spraying perfume is a violation of bus rules and she was kicked off when she refused to give the bottle to the driver.

Richland School District spokesman Steve Aagard says she was let off in a middle school parking lot, and she was on her phone to her father at the time, which served as parental notification. She was given a warning and allowed to ride the bus the next day.
