Recently, cougar sightings have increased in our area. We have been made aware of a sighting very close to campus and have spoken with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Staff have been made aware of the sightings and we have discussed best practices in how to handle cougar encounters. As the seasons are changing and days are growing shorter, we encourage families to be careful at bus stops in the mornings and evenings. To learn more about what to do should you encounter a cougar please follow the link: https://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/living_with/docs/CougarBroch.pdf
