ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) – At one North Carolina elementary school, it's not just students that enjoy romping on the playground.

Teachers at Isaac Dickson Elementary School recently spotted a mother bear and her cub playing on the jungle gym and sliding down the slides.

The adorable moment was all captured on video.

"I love how the mama goes down the big slide and quickly runs to the smaller slide, only to bear hug the little one as they make it to the bottom," Betsie Stockslager Emry said in her Facebook post of the video.

Emry said this isn't the first time bears have visited the school.

"We often are on perimeter lockdown here for bears on campus," she said.
