CHICAGO -- It's a school tradition: the old pie in the face for the principal. That was Monday afternoon, as 150 students from St. Hyacinth were preparing to head home. Monday morning, however, it was more like a punch in the gut when Christine Huzenis learned her school had been broken into and burglarized, likely by someone who knew the place well.
St. Hyacinth's last dollars were stolen over the weekend and the surveillance video disabled. The school suspects someone behind this job knew exactly what they were doing. The class of 2015 is the last to graduate from the school that is set to close for good at the end of the month.
One of the student’s mothers said everyone needs to forgive this person or people first, and hope that the generosity of others will help pay for a happy end to a very end chapter at St. Hyacinth.
