article imageSandy Hook students and staff will head back to school Thursday

By Megan Woo     Jan 2, 2013 in Lifestyle
Newtown - Students and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School will resume classes on Thursday since last month's last shootings that claimed 28 lives, including the perpetrator.
Although classes will resume, they will not be heading back to the school itself. Instead, classes will be held in a building of what used to be Chalk Hill Middle School in the nearby town of Monore.
The school will be run by former principal Donna Page, who retired in 2010, according to ABC News.
Families have been coming in to check out the new school and classrooms. NECN.com says an open house will be held on Wednesday.
According to the Associated Press, workers have been getting classrooms ready, moving furniture, painting walls, raising floors in the bathrooms so students can reach the toilet.
Teachers have been decorating their classrooms to prepare for the big day.
Those who were killed in the shootings will be honored in an official ceremony at some point, but there is currently no word on when it will be held.
