SUNBURY — Parents picked up their children from Grace Beck Elementary School in Sunbury, and were shocked to find out a 5-year-old girl left the building unattended earlier this week.
“That is unbelievable. I never thought it would be so easy for someone to get out,” Brittany Everett said.
District officials say the kindergartener asked to use the restroom at the end of her lunch period. Her teacher noticed she was missing a few minutes later.
“All of the building personnel began to search. They searched the cameras and that’s when they found out she left the building and the police were immediately contacted,” Superintendent Pat Kelley said.
The superintendent says after the girl left the school she ended up here at the Weis Markets on Fourth Street in Sunbury, which is almost one mile away from the school.
