Eagle View Elementary School

"Learning For Life"


Bear Update

UPDATE: We’ve been notified by Conservation and the RCMP that the bear has been euthanized. We have been told that students who normally walk home are free to do so. As always, please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.


Bear Spotted At Lunch Time

There has been a bear spotted at the top of Seaview Drive in our outer parking lot. Students who normally walk home that way will be encouraged to walk another way or take a bus home. Please call us at 250-949-6418 if you need to make different arrangements.

Bear Update

Another bear has been spotted between EVES and the Civic Centre. Students leaving the school will not be permitted to access that side of the school or the Huddlestan trails. Staff have been posted to these areas to ensure safety. Students will come to the office to make the necessary changes if needed.
Parents are welcome to come and pick up their children, or call our transportation department for bus access at 250-949-8155.
Parents may want to make changes to their child’s transportation to and from school in the next while as the bears are certainly making themselves known.


Bear Awareness at Eagle View

Good morning Eagle View families

We have been advised by the Conservation Officer that no further action is required re: Hold and Secure safety measures BUT as residents of the North Island we need to be vigilant and bear aware.

Today at recess and lunch hour we will be using our field, playground and school front areas for outdoor play. We will not be using the side of our school and basketball area that borders on the green belt and forested trail areas.

Students who usually walk home in our school neighbourhood are able to ride busses home; we have two buses that travel to Port Hardy Secondary School so trail and paths can be avoided for local walkers. Please let our transportation department know if your child will be riding the bus as a precautionary measure 949-8155 ext 2523.




We share many of our provincial parks with bears. BC Is home to both grizzly bears and black bears. Bears are extremely sensitive to human disturbance and activity. Avoiding an encounter is the best way to protect both yourself and bears.


Letter From Ms. Walkus

Thank you everyone for your cooperation, patience and support today.  Even with all the changes in our lunch and the afterschool bussing and pickup, the transitions went very smoothly.

That pesky bear………..

Important notice: students who usually walk home from school will either need a parent to pick them up today, or will be bussed home. Please call the school to let us know what your home plan will be. 250-949-6418.
