This is a friendly reminder that at this time of year, bears and other wildlife are frequently seen throughout both Peninsulas. When the District receives a report of a sighting, we take necessary precautions at our schools within the area, such as increased awareness of supervisory staff during passing time, lunch breaks and recess. We encourage families to be alert when walking to and from bus stops. For more information, please refer to this Department of Wildlife link. Stay safe out there in bear country!
