On Tuesday, the Cassville School District held a formal groundbreaking ceremony for an emergency shelter building project that will be completed by RE Smith Construction on the R-4 campus next year. The Cassville School Board awarded RE Smith a $2,150,300 bid, which includes five alternates that will finish the building into a multipurpose facility, in November. The emergency shelter/multipurpose facility will be constructed where the old middle school field house was located. R-4 School Board members and administrators and representatives of Paragon Architecture and RE Smith attended the groundbreaking ceremony.
