Fresno & Clovis Unified School Districts Suspend & Delay Activities Due To Bad Air Quality

The Fresno Unified School District has suspended all after-school activities, including sports, for elementary & middle-school students due to poor air quality.

Clovis Unified has also decided to stop or delay certain sports-related activities.  Clovis Unified's Chief Communication Officer Kelly Avants released this statement at 4:31 p.m. Friday:

"In response to the shift in air quality conditions related to the Rim Fire, Clovis Unified stopped elementary athletic practices and delayed freshman football games to 5 p.m. today, August 30. Hourly assessments on conditions at the fields will be used to determine if high school football games (freshman, JV and Varsity) will be held as scheduled, delayed or canceled."

The Valley's air quality is suffering today, due to smoke from the Rim Fire, which is burning in and near a western section of Yosemite National Park.  Since the fire started two weeks ago, most of the smoke has drifted north of the fire, toward Lake Tahoe & Reno.  Today, the smoke began drifting into the Valley, and is affecting the Fresno area.
