Taos School Board asked to address traffic at Enos García

Posted

The Taos Municipal School District may re-examine traffic flow at Enos García Elementary School after hearing from a concerned parent Tuesday (April 10).

Enos García Parent Teacher Association representative John Rainey addressed the board at its regular meeting, saying the current traffic situation at the school is “extremely frustrating” and a potential safety hazard.

Rainey said cars are parking in the streets around the school while students are picked up, and a lack of crossing guards due to budget constraints is also contributing to the problem.

“It’s chaos,” he said.

He said some solutions could be implemented at no cost and offered to facilitate a meeting among the school district, the town of Taos and police and fire department representatives.

“Something needs to be done,” Rainey said.

Superintendent Rod Weston and board members said they were supportive of the idea of working with other local entities to address the issue.
