Sandy Hook Students Return to School For New Year

Students at the Connecticut school where 20 first-graders and six educators were killed in December are returning to classes in a neighboring town.

Newtown’s first day of school is Tuesday. The Sandy Hook Elementary School students are being bused to the neighboring town of Monroe, where a former middle school was renovated for them shortly after the shootings.

The 400 or so Sandy Hook students are starting their first full school year since the Dec. 14 shootings. Twenty-year-old Adam Lanza shot the 26 victims and killed himself, after fatally shooting his mother at their Newtown home. The motive remains unclear.

Town voters will be asked in October to approve plans to demolish the school where the massacre occurred and build a new one on the same property.
