May 29, 2013

PAWTUCKET —Concerns over possible dangers with the same type of ceilings as the Potter-Burns Elementary School have prompted the closure of the Nathanael Greene Elementary School at least until Monday.

Deborah Cylke said that an engineering report that she received late Tuesday showed there were concerns about the condition of about a half dozen ceilings in classrooms and in the principal's office at the Greene School.
