    No one is allowed on campus without a badge. School officials said that when the principal approached the man, he left without incident.

    The sheriff’s department said the man did not commit a crime. Nonetheless, the school has reminded students not to walk home alone or talk to strangers.

    “I've had had the conversation with my daughters to not talk to people they don't know, but also to let others know if there's someone that has been taking to them," parent Jim Teiper said.

    The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is investigating. They encourage parents, teachers and students to report any suspicious activity.
