Tague: Protect Our Kids & Slow Down Near Cairo-Durham Middle/High School

Assemblyman Chris Tague (R,C,I,Ref-Schoharie) recently met with Anthony Taibi, Superintendent at Cairo-Durham Central School District, to discuss the traffic conditions outside of the Middle/High School. The students recently put out this PSA, which has received an award for bringing awareness to the unsafe driving conditions at the school entrance.

“As we kick off the new school year, I am deeply concerned for the safety of the Cairo-Durham students,” Tague said. “Our students should be able to go to and from classes with a feeling of safety, not burdened with fears for their lives from a stretch of road notorious for accidents. To ensure these students are protected, I am working alongside Superintendent Taibi, Sen. Amedore, Greene County Legislator Bill Lawrence, Greene County Highway Superintendent Robert J. Van Valkenburg, the sheriff’s office and the NYSDOT to get proper attention and support for something we all agree on: keeping our young students safe at their school.”

With elected officials, school administrators, teachers and students joining their voices to get appropriate safety measures installed around the Cairo-Durham Middle/High School, it is far past time to listen to their concerns.

“As we continue our commitment to finding a permanent solution that prioritizes safety, the school district and community sincerely appreciate the continued support of Assemblyman Tague and Sen. Amedore, as well as our county legislature and law enforcement,” Superintendent Anthony Taibi said. “We are hopeful that our combined efforts will lead to the changes needed for the safety of our school and local community.”
