Newtown massacre: Classes resume after Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting
Tuesday 18 December 2012
Familiar routines are expected to resume for some in the Connecticut town that has just begun burying children killed in a school massacre last week.
With the exception of the school where the shooting took place, students in the Newtown district are returning to classes today.
The district is preparing a former middle school for pupils who attended Sandy Hook Elementary and survived the shooting there.
Local police and school officials have been discussing how and where to increase security, and state police said they would be on alert for threats and hoaxes.
Gunman Adam Lanza shot his mother last Friday, then headed to Sandy Hook school and killed 20 children and six adults, and himself. His motive remains unclear.
Funerals were held for six-year-olds Noah Pozner and Jack Pinto yesterday and more are planned for today and the rest of this week.
