Sandy Hook Elementary to Be Demolished

After weeks of deliberations, officials at Sandy Hook Elementary came up with a solution both for the school's relocation and for the use of the building where the worst school shooting in the nation's history happened last December. After considering more than 40 potential sites for a new school building, the 28-person task force unanimously chose a location: the same site as the old school, but in a new building. The old school building will be demolished and a new one built in its place, at a cost of between $42 million and $47 million. "I'm finally at peace," said one task force member. "I think it can be created in such a beautiful way."
