Stormtrooper clears high school

A HIGH school in the US has been evacuated after a scared parent called police about a student dressed as a Star Wars stormtrooper.

The student was dressed up for May 4's Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you/May the Force be with you), wearing body armour and a mask and holding a bag, and entered via a back door at the school near Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Police praised the parent: "When you see something like this, an unknown person walking into a school with a mask on, we have to react to that."

The school has a no-costume policy.
