As the grieving processing continued in Newtown, Connecticut on Monday, the town braced itself to bury two of the twenty children who died in the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Now authorities are contemplating whether the school, which is still an active crime scene, will ever reopen.

State police Lt. Paul Vance said the investigation in Sandy Hook Elementary School could take months before the school would be able to reopen.

Even with the investigation done, however, the idea of the school reopening has not been addressed yet.

“We’re just now getting ready to talk to our son about who was killed,” said Robert Licata, the father of a student who escaped harm during the shooting. “He’s not even there yet.”

Classes were canceled Monday, and Newtown’s other schools were to reopen Tuesday.

The district plans on moving the students of Sandy Hook Elementary School to a former school building in a neighboring town, but a timeline for that transfer has not been established.

Jim Agostine, superintendent of schools in nearby Monroe, said plans were being made for students from Sandy Hook to attend classes in his town this week.

The future of Sandy Hook Elementary School is unknown. Some have argued the school should be torn down, while others have suggested it should become a memorial for the victims.

I can’t even imagine how a child who was there on the horrific day would ever be able to return to the building.
