Earlier today, a parent notified district administration of a bear sighting on the district campus near the One Room Schoolhouse. The Derry Borough Police were notified of the situation. The Game Commission was also made aware of the bear sighting. Out of an abundance of caution and for safety concerns, all students participating in outdoor activities were brought inside the buildings.
The District is otherwise operating under normal conditions.
