PAWTUCKET—School officials say George Grimes was a versatile English language arts teacher who had always received positive evaluations for his job performance. Therefore, the news of his arrest Thursday morning on child pornography charges rocked the Shea High School community as well as those on the administration side, said interim Schools Superintendent Patricia DiCenso.
“This was not on our radar,” said DiCenso. “We're sad and surprised. And the children are sad. But the children's safety comes first, and Mr. Grimes has been placed on leave while we investigate this,” she said.
