Please know that we experienced some mixed emotions today during 4th Grade recess. Our staff and students were surprised by a wounded deer on the playground today. The deer was obviously hurt and scared while running all around the playground area. Our staff and students were great respondents to the intrusion and reacted appropriately. The deer did run into a student swinging before making a quick leap off campus. The student was immediately assisted by Mrs. Forsyth, School Nurse, and Admin Team. Mom happened to be on campus to assist with the medical attention as well. Despite a small ice pack, he is doing great! We called "indoor recess" for the remaining classes to ensure the deer did not return as well as time to properly clean the playground equipment. The students were all very surprised yet anxious about the unique situation. I am sure they will all have stories. We are thankful for the safety of our staff and students!
