Children from Sandy Hook Elementary try to return to a sense of normalcy three weeks after a gunman went on a deadly shooting rampage at their school.
Thursday morning students arrived at a new building several miles away from Newtown.
The unused school in the town of Monroe was renovated and renamed Sandy Hook Elementary. Students found familiar items from their previous school like old desks, coats and lunchboxes in their new classrooms.
Extra counselors were on hand to greet the children and there were police officers inside and outside of the school.
Several security devices have also been put in place and police are stopping every vehicle that goes onto the campus.
