We have already received reports of bear sightings throughout the District. It serves as a great reminder that “Bear Season” is upon us. The District takes necessary precautions at our schools within the area, such as increased awareness of supervisory staff during passing time, lunch breaks and recess time. We encourage families to educate their children about only playing in wooded areas with multiple friends and to play loudly so as not to startle bears. Also, please be alert when walking to and from bus stops.
Here are Fish And Wildlife bulletins for interacting safely with wildlife:
- Bears - Do's and Don'ts in Bear Country
- Cougars - Preventing Conflicts With Cougars
- Coyotes - Living with Coyotes
Stay safe out there!
