ESPANOLA -- An Espanola charter school that was temporarily shuttered because of building inspection concerns is back open for the time being, but is without bus and food services as of Tuesday.

A building contractor will inspect Carinos Charter School, which was red-tagged last week after inspectors said they found exposed wires, possible mold and asbestos in the building, and put together an estimate of things needing to be fixed.

A spokesperson for the school said the Espanola School District is "sitting on their hands on repairs" at this time.

The school, which around 200 students attend, says the district is responsible for maintaining the building, and that previous inspections didn't find any similar problems.
