Two people wearing masks were seen trying to climb on the roof of Hinsdale Central High School Friday morning.
Iterim Principal Tom Paulsen sent a letter Friday to parents of students at the high school advising them that school employees saw two individuals on a fence around the Dumpsters by the loading dock on the ease side of the school at 10:45 a.m. Friday.
“The individuals were nearly on the roof when the vigilance of Frank Wright and Suzy Skowronski of our building and grounds department thwarted that attempt,” Paulsen wrote. “The pair jumped down and ran across Grant Street disappearing into the neighborhood directly to the east.”
The employees think the offenders, who wore cloth masks, were male.
“Video camera footage shows the two individuals entering the loading dock area from the east prior to the attempt to gain access to the roof,” Paulsen wrote.
“A thorough inspection of the roof did not reveal anything out of the ordinary,” Paulsen said.
Anyone who hears anything relevant to the incident is asked to call the police non-emergency number at (630) 789-7070.
