I can see why the Board would want to build an addition onto CASS but I don't think that they really thought of the students. Where the school sits now, students can walk to the arena, the Post Office and the Fire Hall for field trips. They will now have to be bussed, which is an added cost, therefore, there will be less field trips. They will also have to bus students that now walk to school.
