I am a sixth grader and it was seriously scary to have an armed man on campus.I was talking to my friends when one of them told me there was an armed man near the fence that seperated the two properties.Since I was close to the fence I was having a major breakdown.This isn't my first time in this situation so I was calmer than most of my friends.

Hi I am a rosita elementary student. I am a sixth grader and this was the scariest day of my life! I've never had a lockdown before but I was calm! But I was in a student council meeting when this happend... All of a sudden kids were running into our meeting room and told us that there was a guy with a gun! So I was scared and the whole class sat down! Some of us tried to calm down and pray most of us were scared! I'm scared and hope this will never happen again.

Hello I'm a six grader at rosita elementary . This was one of the most scariest thing that happened to me . Even though I wasn't crying I was scared my heart was pounding like crazy and I was praying that nothing happens like this again. I was also in student council and When people started coming in I was shocked and confused finally someone told me what had happen. Seriously this was one of the most terrifying thing in my life that I would never forget . For my friends, classmates,other rosita students,and me.

Hey I was at rosita too it was so cool yet so scary . A few month near the sandy hook shooting my friends was like what would happen if it was here and it did ! Many kids were crying and the most gross thing was that some kids had to use the bath room and it was a bucket !

Im a student from irvine intermediate, former rosita student. Irvine had a lockdown not too long ago on December 21st right before winter break. I think it was about 8:10 through 8:15 when I saw a teacher came running yelling to go to our first period classroom. So I ran my life thinking that I was late for class. I got in my class and there were only a few people. Soon after we were sitting on the ground. My class was facing the road and it didn't have curtains for the windows so it was kinda dangerous. Then the police came and told us to stay calm. We soon then had an assembly and the principal told us about the whole thing. I was shocked when my sister told me about the incident. I was in my 5th Period class(PE) that time and Im just glad that everyone is safe. I'm proud of the students who told the administrator about the guy with the gun. Applaud for them! To me it was kinda scary and fun at the same time because you have experienced a lockdown and you know what to do if this happened ever again.

I was in the restroom getting sucked off by a fellow 6th grader when I heard all the commotion! I nearly blew my load into her mouth, but a teacher walked in & she pulled back her head causing me to explode all over her face :(
