A cougar sighting in the area of Hillside Traditional has prompted the school to keep its students indoors.
Angus Wilson, superintendent of schools said parents have been notified of the situation.
“The RCMP asked them (the school) to keep the kids in during non-class times, as a precaution,” explained Wilson.
They also implemented a hand-to-hand system at the end of the school day..
“That means the parents come into the school to get their child and leave, rather than have the kids wander around,” said Wilson.
There is no further information about the cougar sighting at this time.
