SACRAMENTO - A mountain lion was spotted on a hill behind Rocklin High School around noon Wednesday, the school principal confirmed.
A boys physical education class and their instructor saw the big cat, which moved away, Principal David Bills said.
"We immediately cleared the area, brought students in," Bill said.
Rocklin police searched for the mountain lion for more than hour without finding it, Bills said.
All students were kept to the interior of the campus on Victory Lane until police concluded their search.
Bills said all was back to routine Wednesday afternoon.
