The Pole Creek Fire is producing enough smoke that it is affecting student activities at Sister High School.
Athletic Director Tim Roth says they are forced to makes minute by minute decisions. "Right now, we have no physical activity outdoors in the Sisters School District. Typically, by noon the smoke is lifted and the air quality gets significantly better. So we're still waiting to make a call on afternoon practices. Yesterday all middle school and elementary school practices were canceled. We had limited high school practices. And so we're still waiting to make a call on that right now, in terms of this afternoon."
Roth says luckily, the Sisters football game is an away game in Madras, but other games scheduled at the school are being moved to alternate locations.
All Sisters High students are being kept inside buildings today for health reasons.
