The new Sandy Hook Elementary School will be unveiled at the end of the month. Newtown First Selectman Pat Llodra and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph Erardi will open the school to the media for a press conference before the official opening at the start of the new schol year this fall.
Erardi says the transition to the new school needs to be as seamless as possible for the children, asking for the space needed to allow high quality teaching and learning on the first day of school.
Llodra says they are very grateful to state taxpayers for giving the town the funding to create a place of community and learning, and a place that would honor those lost. Llodra says this new school will allow those who were left behind the chance to move forward.
