Newtown, Connecticut – Teachers and students of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut are set to return to school following the recent school shooting that left several students and teachers dead. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), many parents have expressed being nervous about allowing their children to return to school in the wake of the tragic incident in which 20 children and six adults at the school were killed by 20-year-old Adam Lanza. Lanza also killed himself at the scene, and his mother at their home prior to the school massacre almost three weeks ago.
David Connors, a parent, in quoted by the AP as stating, “I’m nervous about it…It’s unchartered waters for us. I know it’s going to be difficult.”
Superintendent Janet Robinson is further quoted as stating of the return, “We want to get back to teaching and learning…We will obviously take time out from the academics for any conversations that need to take place, and there will be a lot of support there. All in all, we want the kids to reconnect with their friends and classroom teachers, and I think that’s going to be the healthiest thing.”
