The recent fires in the area have been giving us some smoky air during the day, and some kids are feeing the effects of the smoke. Mary Lou Patterson, lead nurse with Bend La Pine Schools says kids are allowed to opt out of P.E. if they are have problems breathing.  "We have a fair number of both students and staff that have asthma. And we don't usually see problems with the kids until the people start with their wood stoves, later on in the school year. But the smoke in the air has been noticeable, and even though the DEQ (Department of Environmental Quality), the air quality index still says moderate, we have had a number of children who have some difficulty." Patterson says they try to reminds asthmatic kids to use their inhalers more often, as a preventative measure.
