Andrew Adams, KSL Newsradio Parents are worried about a bear sighting near a Spanish Fork elementary school. They're asking why they weren't warned the Tuesday night when the sighting happened.
Eric Nilson says his kids had to walk to River View Elementary the next morning. He thinks something should have been done. "You know, if there was some type of a system in place so we could have been notified before our kids walked to school," he said.
Nebo School District spokesperson Lana Hiskey says that heads-up came the next day, well after the kids had walked to school. "The officer that called was not alarmed about the bear but thought that it would be nice for the school to know," she explained.
After that they warned parents and called in an officer to make sure the area was secure.
