ELYSIAN HEIGHTS — An effort by Elysian Heights Elementary to keep its campus and surrounding sidewalks and lawn free of dog poop seems to be working. One Elysian Heights mom complained that students were stepping in dog waste outside of the school and bringing it into the campus on the bottom of their shoes. But conditions have improved after signs were installed around the campus, said Principal Emilio Garza. Said Garza:
We have a lot of great neighbors who are very respectful of the community and the environment. Unfortunately, a few people have continued to leave their pets droppings. We have posted signs around the campus and have seen a decrease over the last few months.
