Well, the new Sandy Hook School was holding an open house today.
The formerly named Chalk Hill Middle School was re-christened Sandy Hook Elementary.
It was made to look as much like the old school as possible, right down to the crayons on
the desk or so the articles chortle.
My question is why? Why not name it Chalk Hill Elementary?
This is just another anolmalie to me and seems like you can almost think this was in the works
for some time now, the closing of one school to be reborn somewhere else.
I would think you wouldn't want any reminders of the tragedy at the school.
Why even move to a new location if everything is made to seem the same anyway?
Then there's this: The school superintendent says ALL the teachers were there today.
Well, isn't that special.
Did they hire more or never needed to because these were all "extras" to start with.
I am amazed how many of the teachers were new hires and for many of the involved
families this is a new town for them, too.
See video link.
Oh yeah, the lawyer who's case I knew was just a gambit to start with, the attorney withdrew due to
backlash. But, it did give that goose of realism this case is sorely lacking in certain areas.
I found a link to a story that wouldn't open up a week ago that said Newtown School Board has 35 new hires.
I would have loved to see that list.
