Parents with children at Chaparral Elementary School were sent a warning after a resident reported a possible sighting of a cougar near the school.

The Fish and Game Department surveyed the area near 17250 Tannin Dr. and did not find any evidence of a cougar. The search was eventually called off.

Children are being kept off the playground this afternoon just in case, according to the statement sent to parents.
