Pawtucket Mayor Dennis M. Lynch (pictured above) gave his support for Pawtucket high school students who refused to attend classes last week. 

Students were protesting that they had to make up classes lost during the teachers’ strike in the fall over their holiday break.

Leading up to the boycott, the students expressed their concerns at two school board meetings.
