Reports are coming in via Twitter that a demolition has arrived at the Whittier Elementary School fieldhouse, which parents and community members fought to save last year. Earlier this week the CPS board decided to go back on its promise to allow the community to take over the fieldhouse. We've got a reporter heading down and will update as the story unfolds. UPDATE: The sit-in is back on. UPDATE 2: Full story in Mechanics.
