Our wishes go out to the student and her family for being subjected to this ordeal and our wishes go out to law enforcement to catch this sucker quickly.

I'm a student at Castilleja and was near the incident(without knowledge of the happenings) I am friends with the student, and am glad she got out alright. The school handled it greatly, we had guests today so it was a little hard to alert everyone considering the guest were young kids. She was very smart, and I hope the man if found soon without hurting anyone else.
