Parents, activists to city: Probe Pilsen high school roof damage

March 14, 2017

“Community activists and parents of students at Benito Juarez High School called on the city to investigate how a chunk of the Pilsen high school’s roof was ripped off during a violent windstorm Monday night.

Speaking to reporters across the street from the school, Byron Sigcho, director of the Pilsen Alliance, urged the city’s Department of Buildings to get to the bottom of what happened to the only 7-year-old roof.

“We need to know what has happened,” Sigcho said to reporters on another particularly windy evening. “This is serious, when someone can get hurt. It can not just be overlooked.”
