PAWTUCKET â€” Another ceiling collapse, this time in an unused room at Slater Middle School, has prompted an emergency meeting of the School Committee to be held Monday night.
Interim Schools Supt. Patti DiCenso said the room, across from the assistant principalâ€™s office, had been closed off for occupancy due to concerns about the stability of the ceiling during an inspection of the cityâ€™s older school buildings last summer. The inspection had been called after a drop ceiling in a basement classroom at the Potter-Burns Elementary School gave way last fall.
PAWTUCKET â€” It was an invitation that four young men could have done without.
Pawtucket Police say five people were arrested Sunday after allegedly pistol-whipping and robbing four men who had been lured to an after-hours party in the basement of a house at 85 Daniels St.
