Reports of a mountain lion in the area force a Bismarck school to take precautions.
Parents of students at Prairie Rose received a message this morning telling them about the potential of a mountain lion sighting in the area.
Students are not going outside for recess today as a precaution and Game and Fish officials and the Burleigh County Sheriff's Department are searching the area.
The school asks if your child normally walks home to please call the school to make arrangements for pick-up.
The number is 323-4280.
