New Haven Public Schools are investigating and several employees are on leave after a pre-k student wandered away from the playground during recess on Monday.
School officials said the child walked away from recess at the Truman School around 10:07 a.m. The student was found safe a short time later.
The staff who were supposed to be watching the child have been placed on administrative leave during the investigation. The Department of Children and Families was notified, and school officials said they are reviewing protocols.
No other details were immediately available.
