Police and school officals said Dale Regan, head of Episcopal School, was shot and killed. She is shown here accepting an Eve Award last summer.
"We have full confidence that Dale Regan is already with God and in heaven with our Lord and savior Jesus, but we ask for your prayers as we mourn this great leader," said the Rev. Kathryn Moorehead, dean of Episcopal Cathedral.
Tuesday afternoon, Episcopal School posted an update on its website: "The entire school family mourns the loss of our friend and leader. All students and faculty are safe and our campus is secure."
Police identified Shane Schummerth, a Spanish teacher at Episcopal School since 2010, as the gunman.
Episcopal School notified parents that the school will remain closed for the rest of the week and will reopen on March 19, after spring break.
One of several vigils is held just hours after Regan was killed.
