Black Bear Sighted in School Neighbourhood
A small black bear was spotted in the neighbourhood nearby the school this morning around 8:30am. As a precaution, the school was put into a Shelter in Place, meaning that the students were kept indoors for morning recess and extra adult supervision was assigned to monitor the school grounds. Police were called and searched the area, with no additional sightings of the bear. School operations returned to normal at approximately 10:10am as the Shelter in Place was lifted, under the direction of Durham Regional Police Services. Staff will continue to be vigilant and closely oversee the school grounds.
