Though no students were hurt during a more than six-hour standoff in which a teacher was held hostage earlier this week at Castle View Elementary School in Riverside, at least one school official said she is worried about mental trauma.

Riverside Unified school board Vice President Patricia Lock-Dawson made those comments Friday evening at a community meeting held at the school on Shaker Drive.
