Parents in Newtown, Conn., are bracing to send their children back to school, nearly three weeks after the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It won't be easy — for the parents or the children, who heard the gunshots that killed 20 of their classmates and six educators.
Since escaping a gunman's rampage at their elementary school, the 8-year-old Connors triplets have suffered nightmares, jumped at noises and clung to their parents a little more than usual.
The children at the Sandy Hook Elementary School won't be returning to classes for another week, but officials from the town, school district and local agencies are doing their best in the meantime to keep them occupied following a massacre at their school two weeks ago.
"Kids just spontaneously make associations and will start talking about something that reminds them of someone, or that reminds them of some of the scary parts of the experience," Mr. Ford said.
It will be important for parents and teachers to listen and be observant, Mr. Ford said.
