Students at the Wendover Middle School in Hempfield Township, Pennsylvania, got an unexpected day off after a classmate wandered into the school before the first bell.

On February 21, 2018, around 2:30 a.m., a seventh grader called police from inside the school. He told them that he had somehow been sleepwalking and traveled four miles by foot before realizing what had happened.

The student broke a window and climbed through it to get inside the school.

“There was no vandalism aside from, of course, he broke a window to gain access to the school,” WTAE’S Brittany Hoke with said in a Facebook Live video. “But other than that, it doesn’t appear that anything else was vandalized or stolen or anything like that.”

According to CBS Philly, authorities said he was wandering inside the school for about 15 minutes.

“It appears he went through a screen in the window and got himself in the school. He was in the school about 15 minutes,” Pennsylvania State Trooper Stephan told KDKA. “He believes he was sleepwalking and went to the school.”

The school district decided to cancel classes as a precautionary measure, so that local police officers could sweep the building and make sure it was safe. School resumed the next day after getting the all-clear.
