Oregon Trail schools open despite smoke, heat
The first day of school is right still on schedule for Oregon Trail School District. With air quality and heat advisories issued because of wildfires in the area, several other local districts have decided to close today.
Communications Director Julia Monteith said in an early-morning message that all schools would be open but that "no decision about provisions" had been made at the time.
"We'll assess it this morning before kids head out to recess," she explained. "Indoor recess is definitely an option."
