If you saw someone immediately stop what they were doing and begin to stare off into space for several minutes, what would you think? Or if you saw a person suddenly fall to the ground and shake all over, what would you do?

Center School needs to be replaced. Cramped quarters have forced specialists and their desks into hallways. The heating system is so inconsistent and antiquated that students have to wear coats in some rooms and T-shirts in others. There's not enough parking for staff, let alone parents and visitors.
