About an hour ago, a reader wrote in to say: "I live 2 blocks from Schurz High School (Addison & Milwaukee on the
northwest side). Police have blocked off all foot and road traffic
within 1 block of the school. Multiple police cars. Several empty city
buses stacked up on Milwaukee. ABC7 helicopter overhead. I have no clue
what's going on, but it obviously isn't normal."
Not normal indeed. Here's the Tribune's post about it: 'Suspicious item' investigated near Schurz: "Schurz High School was not evacuated Monday afternoon, but students
were redirected to another exit that was away from the "suspicious
item," said CPS spokesman Mike Vaughn." Great tip -- keep sending them in (district299 at gmail dot com)!
