Three kindergarten students wandered from their Pittsburgh school but returned safely, prompting officials to ask parents to talk with kids about not leaving school early.

Pittsburgh Public Schools spokeswoman Ebony Pugh said the youngsters left Mifflin PreK-8 in Lincoln Place through an unattended side door before homeroom began at 9:10 a.m. on Tuesday, to go to a park.

Pugh said Mifflin Principal Edward Littlehale met with staff and talked with the kindergarten students about staying safe. He alerted parents to the incident in a letter, reminding them to tell their children not to leave the building before they're supposed to and that they should tell an adult if they know a student might leave school.
