Superintendent of Schools Janet Robinson says Nancy Lanza is not in the district's database as a staff member.  She says she has never met Lanza.  It's unclear at this time if the woman was a substitute in the district.


Students will not be back in the building for the foreseeable future.  Robinson says alternate arrangements are being made in other schools.  Grief counseling available to parents, students and staff.


Connecticut State Police spokesman Lt Paul Vance says the gunman, 20-year old Adam Lanza, forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School.  Vance said Saturday morning that the suspect was not voluntarily let into the building.


Vance says emergency responders broke a number of windows so they could get into the building as quickly as possible to save as many lives as they could.  But he notes, investigators have established a point of entry for the shooter.


A law enforcement official says Lanza brought three guns into the elementary school and that the weapons were registered to his slain mother.  The official was not authorized to discuss information with reporters and spoke on condition of anonymity.  The official says a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both pistols, and a .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle were found in the school after the massacre Friday.

The official says that a fourth weapon was found outside the school and that investigators have been going to shooting ranges and gun stores to see if Lanza had frequented them.
