MEDFORD, Ore.- The Medford School District says it has a master calendar to coordinate where every outdoor sport and activity can practice inside.
Natalie Hurd, the communication specialist with the Medford School District says, "I think that planning ahead and coming together, looking at that calendar, getting all of the players in one room. To say when do you need space when do you need space and what kind of space do you need really helps."
Hurd says the district has 19 buildings including some large gyms to house team practices. She adds all of the facilities are air conditioned and fitted with fresh air filters.
When it comes to the South Medford High School football home opener, Hurd says the team might not get the home field advantage.
Hurd explains, "We do already have plans for scrimmages to take place next week, we’re going to go up to Cottage Grove and another town further north."
The district says if it is still smoky come game time, home games will be moved away.
When asked about the cost of all the extra traveling likely to happen with the smoke, the district says it may have to take a second look at its budget.
