Good Morning Putnam Valley Community:
This morning at our Elementary School, a bear cub was spotted near one of the garbage dumpsters. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation have been notified and we are all monitoring the area very closely. Sheriff Deputies are currently on site. The Elementary School will remain in Lock Out for the remainder of the day. Lock Out means that normal activities continue indoors and all outdoor activities are canceled.
The perimeter of the property will be monitored throughout the day and we will have extra staff and members of the Sheriff’s Department on site for dismissal.
