Monroe, Conn., approves plan to relocate Sandy Hook Elementary

Students from Newtown school will attend classes in nearby town

From Monroe Patch: At an emergency meeting, the Monroe (Conn.) Town Council approved a resolution allowing Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown to be relocated to the former Chalk Hill Middle School building. Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy issued an executive order to speed up approval of an agreement between Monroe and Newtown allowing Sandy Hook Elementary into Chalk Hill as soon as possible.

From USA Today: When pupils from Sandy Hook Elementary School return to classes, they will be housed in a former school building in the nearby town of Monroe. Crews are working on the former Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe with a goal of making it ready for pupils by Wednesday. The two-story building sits along a winding, wooded road next to a new middle school and an elementary school. Police say it could be months before police turn the Sandy Hook school back over to the district, and even at that point, those who survived the shooting last week would be unlikely to return to the Sandy Hook campus.
