Liberty Elementary School and Horizon Middle School in north Bismarck have sent an email to parents after an unconfirmed mountain lion sighting.
The school is asking that students not walk home alone today.
A second email has now been sent to parents of BPS students at 3 pm. This email says Bismarck Police have found nothing to confirm the mountain lion sighting.
The school says students who walk home will be held at school to give parents time to call the office in case parents wish to pick them up.
Bismarck Police were called to an area in north Bismarck last week in the Hay Creek area for a mountain lion sighting. No tracks or mountain lions were found during the search.
