There will be no school next Monday and Tuesday at Slater junior high in Pawtucket because of asbestos removal.

Crews repairing the ceiling in the boy's locker room discovered another ceiling well above the one being repaired and discovered asbestos. Officials are taking extra precaution and clearing out students as they get rid of it Friday after school.

Deborah Cylke superintendent of the Pawtucket school district states all ceilings in Pawtucket schools are being inspected in the wake of a ceiling collapse earlier this year at the Potter burns elementary school.
