Sleepwalking student causes school to cancel classes
GREENSBURG, Pa. – A Pennsylvania middle school canceled classes after a sleepwalking student was found inside the building.
State police say the seventh-grade student called 911 around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday to report he was inside Wendover Middle School in Hempfield Township.
The student told authorities he had been sleepwalking and woke up inside the school. Police say the student entered the school through a window and wandered around for about 15 minutes.
Police say the student lives about four miles from the school.
The Hempfield Area School District cancelled classes Wednesday due to security concerns, and police swept the building. The district says Wednesday’s incident is not connected to another student’s arrest earlier this week for allegedly threatening to shoot a female student.
Classes were scheduled to resume Thursday.
