Students were asked to wear helmets or hard hats to class to protect them from falling debris due to unsafe conditions.

The Ministry of Public Education (SEP, Spanish acronym) began repair work today at the María Elvira Delgado de Calderón elementary school in Los Mochis, Sinaloa according to a press statement they released earlier today.

EL UNIVERSAL reported yesterday that a group of students wore hard hats and helmets to class in order to protect them from potential falling debris in six of the school's classrooms with deteriorating ceilings and walls. Several outraged parents filed an official complaint with state officials claiming that the school was in “deplorable” conditions.

In the press statement, the ministry claims that in addition to the repairs, it's evaluating the structural safety of the school building to ensure it is up to code.
