A bear (not pictured) was seen near Jones Middle School on Friday.

Jones Middle School students were kept inside Friday after a bear was spotted near the Buford-area campus, according to a letter sent to parents.

The bear was seen near a campus fence early Friday morning by a student and a parent. Students were immediately taken inside.

A school resource officer looked for the bear outside, but couldn’t find it, according to the letter sent by Principal Memorie Reesman.

The school restricted outdoor activities for the rest of the day. Sixth grade students were scheduled to participate in “outdoor science activities,” which were canceled.
