Riverbend Elementary School held its morning recess indoors Thursday after hearing reports of a bear sighting along the Mendenhall River.
Administrative assistant Lisa Peters says no one at the school saw the bear firsthand, but that the first recess shift at 9:10 a.m. was held indoors in “an abundance of caution.”
The seven other recess shifts during the day were held outside.
The bear reports followed a backyard YouTube video of a bear crossing the Mendenhall River making its rounds on social media. The videographer could not be reached for comment, but the video description says it was shot on Monday.
