  1. WHT!.....I am becoming overwhelmed with negligence for safety of my children in school!.... this is happening way too often in Hemet/Perris Unified district...., our school need to have an Aid in classrooms or Cameras in place to insure the safety of our children in this day in age.

    1. Why? it was over internet and phone text. if any thing, the person who gave out they're info like that are the ones to blame. yes this is a crime, and yes its wrong, but dont be stupid enough to put yourself at risk like that.
