Parents from two Northwest Side schools are concerned about the safety of students who will be going to new schools this fall.

They joined neighborhood residents and teachers for a vigil today. Organizers say students from Von Humboldt and Duprey Elementary will have to travel through gang territories and violence plagued areas on their way to school.

Von Humboldt and Duprey are part of the final group of Chicago Public Schools that are closing Monday.
