JFK students forced to run to classes in the rain

Students at John F. Kennedy High School were forced to run in the rain during their lunch period today.  JFK assistant principal Bobby Roberto says during the rainy weather, students are unable to walk from the buildings to the cafeteria.  She says she's been requesting for Core Tech International to install canopies to ensure students aren't drenched on days such as this.

She says students can't afford to get sick, telling KUAM News, "Not only do we have the h1n1 virus, but that just compounds a person's immunity system if they already have a preexisting condition. So we're doing our part to make sure our students stay healthy. We want our parents to do our part and at least for the facilities, let's put that canopy up so that students are protected from the rain."

In the meantime, Core Tech's Josh Tenorio tells KUAM that they should be receiving the materials for the canopies within the next week or so. Installation will take place after.
