On the way from Newtown to Monroe Wednesday morning, there were green and white signs welcoming Sandy Hook Elementary School
students, parents and staff.
At the edge of the once vacant Chalk Hill School driveway, there was a sign and balloons — as well as several police officers.
Once a middle school, the former Chalk Hill School has been given a makeover and renamed. It is now Sandy Hook Elementary School — a nod to its new occupants who will begin classes in the building Thursday.
