ANDERSON, Ind. (WISH) - An investigation is underway in Anderson after second grader was left at school, nearly three hours after dismissal. No one knew the little boy was missing until he called 911.
The superintendent of the district, Dr. Felix Chow, says the male student was sent to the principal's office earlier in the day Wednesday, but somehow he got lost in the shuffle.
"The dean, at some point, walked the student back to the classroom, but in-between a certain period of time he must have gone into some place, fell asleep undetected until he woke up," Chow said. "Thank God he had the intelligence to call 911."
Chow says the student told officials he fell asleep in a room. Thursday, school leaders were trying to figure out where.
As a result, the district is making changes.
"One part of the new procedure is to make sure that every adult will accompany the child to their destination. And if necessary, reverse the same process back to the classroom," Chow said.
Meanwhile, the district did report the incident to Child Protective Services. Superintendent Chow says the agency determined no further investigation was needed.
