THE BRONX - A Hunts Point Catholic school in danger of being shut down has bought itself at least a few more weeks.

Saint Ignatius Middle School announced two weeks ago that it needed to raise $1 million by May 3 to keep the books open. Many students and parents started fundraising right away, buying some more time.

The financially strapped school say that parents can expect another update by May 24.
