Parents are continuing a sit-in at Whittier Elementary School despite getting word that a field house they're protecting will not be immediately demolished.

Parents want the field house to be renovated into a library, but Chicago Public Schools says the building is structurally unsafe and should be torn down.

On Tuesday 25th ward Alderman Danny Solis sent a letter to the parents that CPS CEO Ron Huberman agreed to not have the building demolished until a third structural assessment is completed. Once that report is completed, Solis promised to review it with the parents and discuss options for the field house.
