Letters were sent to homes in the White Pass School District yesterday morning, after the district Transportation Supervisor spotted a cougar on the grounds of the high school. Superintendent Rebecca Miner says that the supervisor spotted the cougar shortly after 6 am, then watched as the big cat left the campus, crossed a road and went into the woods. As a safety precaution, elementary school students weren’t allowed outside during breakfast, then staff swept the entire campus. Miner says that Washington Fish and Wildlife was notified; she also provided information on how students can ride buses to school, rather than walk. No other sightings have been reported at this time.
