Curtis playground

The Curtis School playground is now missing all of its swings.

PAWTUCKET – Families concerned about the condition of two local school playgrounds will have to wait until next summer to see major upgrades.

The Pawtucket School Committee is now doing homework on whether to shut down the Curtis Elementary School playground off Benefit Street temporarily in response to concerns raised by parent Sarah Seelbach and others about removed and broken equipment and resulting lack of safety.

I am all for fixing playgrounds especially where kids are going to play and hang out but they fix one playground. I think they should fit all the playgrounds at the schools. Agnes little hasn’t had a suitable playground in years. They have some climbing things and that’s about it they should fix that one as well and make it accessible for all kids
