HAMILTON, N.J. -- Officials at a Hamilton Township school are hoping for a return to normal Tuesday, a day after class was disrupted by two deer leaping through a window.

Pastor Lance Walker of the Faith Baptist School says the deer jumped into a teacher's supply room Monday morning, startling three students and a teacher who were working on a lesson.

They managed to get out and close the door, leaving the deer to trash the room.

The school canceled outdoor recess for the day.

By early afternoon, animal control officers showed up and tranquilized the animals so they could be taken away from the school.
