Mountain Lion Update

Silver Schools has spoken with Silver City Police Department and it has been determined that we can lift the ban on no recesses at our school sites.  However, Silver Schools wants to give parents the option of keeping their children indoors if they feel safer until the threat of mountain lion has been resolved.  There was a sighting on Saturday (11/11/17) of a mountain lion north of town on PA Road.  Please contact your child’s school if you do not want your child to participate in outdoor activities.  We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding.  We value your children and want to make sure that they are safe at school.
