“Personally, I think it’s a good idea,” Chafe said. “We’re in a spot, we need space.”
Opening the kindergarten center could also be a step toward moving full-day kindergarten classes out of the high school, a move that Chafe said would be in the best interests of those students.

As for transition woes? Chafe said he attended Liberty as a child for kindergarten and then went to Morrison to finish elementary school. He said he does not believe it will be a large upheaval for kids.
“They’re resilient,” Chafe said.
