KENSINGTON - A new grate was installed at Yeshivat Shaare Torah Friday following its collapse in May that left more than 30 schoolgirls injured.

The Department of Buildings ordered the school to replace the grate to cover a light shed. The grate is said to meet city standards and is approved by the department.

In response to the collapse, the Department of Buildings slapped Yeshivat Shaare Torah with a $5,000 violation.

Some in the community say the city should be held responsible for the collapse as well as the school.
