Students from Sandy Hook Elementary School will return Thursday to new classrooms that have been designed to mirror the ones they fled during last month’s massacre.
Their desks, backpacks and coats at their new school in neighboring Monroe, Conn., will be in the same spots they were in the Newtown building when Adam Lanza blasted his way inside and killed 20 children and six staffers.
The painstaking replication at the repurposed school was done to help the children return to a routine after three weeks of mourning. An open house is being held Wednesday to give parents and students a chance to look around.
"There's certainly going to be children that are scared,” Thalia Andernen, a counselor with The Center of Hope, a non-profit family support center, told NBC New York.
“They're going to be frightened and feel very insecure about going back, but a lot of them are going to be resilient.”
