“1, 2 o’clock in the morning – music, music, music. They’re playing ball. They’re banging balls,” one resident told Xirinachs.

“The noise is unbearable,” said Rosa, a homeowner who said she needs a good night’s sleep. “It’s unbelievable. The kids, they yell. They scream.”

So, the school district has erected security gates and fences.

New security cameras will also be installed.

A seven member committee residents, school officials, and police has been formed to come up with other solutions to this problem.
