  • School areas are usually large. Their best way of finding the culprit may be sniffer dogs. Unfortunately the dogs will probably be confused because so many people visit there. Fortunately the school staff were able to contact the parents.


  • This is every parent’s nightmare. School should be a safe place, but unfortunately it’s not anymore.


  • This must have been so scary for all the parents! And they haven’t found the man yet. I hope they will!!
