Forget sleeping in class. Try sleeping on the way to class. At night! On a Sunday! Last weekend, sheriff’s deputies in St. Charles, Illinois, discovered a 5 year-old boy at his elementary school way past his bedtime. Seems the little guy had sleepwalked to school, managing to escape the house without waking his parents. Upon discovery at 1:30 am, the police took him to the hospital where a school district official identified him and sent him home. What could have caused the wee fella to make the trek? Trying to impress his teachers? Text-anxiety? Determined to stake out the best seat in class? Hard to tell, but one thing is for sure: His parents can rest assured that their son definitely knows the way to school.
