The parent sit-in at Whittier elementary in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood is now in its tenth day.

This morning they took their protest to the office of Alderman Danny Solis.

Solis sent a letter to parents on Tuesday saying schools CEO Ron Huberman agreed not to demolish a Whittier fieldhouse until a third structural assessment is completed.

Parents now say the letter is not good enough and the sit-in will continue.

They want the fieldhouse converted into a library, but school officials say the building is structurally unsafe.

On Friday, Alderman Solis said he is waiting for a third structural report before he can move forward take further action.
