Sandy Hook Survivors Return to School in Replicated Building

Students from Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, where a gunman massacred 27 people last month, will return to school Thursday in a nearby building that has been designed to directly mirror the old one they were forced to flee. The new school building in the neighboring city of Monroe has been specifically designed to replicate the old school building in an effort to help the surviving children cope with the tragedy and return to a routine after three weeks of mourning.
