The district said students were warned of the animal's presence and were kept indoors while animal control and Utah Division of Wildlife Resources were summoned to the scene.

The bear wandered away from the campus and climbed a tree about a half block away, where it remained until game wardens arrived and tranquilized it.

The DWR said the bear was transported to a remote habitat and released.
