Officials: Chalk Hill Will Be Safe For Sandy Hook Students [VIDEO]

Monroe Police Lt. Brian McCauley and Fire Marshal Bill Davin briefed reporters on Chalk Hill being prepared for Sandy Hook Elementary School students and staff.

Monroe Police Lt. Brian McCauley and Fire Marshal Bill Davin answered questions from the news media during a press conference inside the gazebo outside Town Hall, 7 Fan Hill Road, at 1 p.m. on Monday.

The briefing covered the preparations of the Chalk Hill building for use by Sandy Hook Elementary School and how police officers will keep children safe and secure on their first day back to school.

Sandy Hook School students will be attending Chalk Hill as an alternative education facility in the wake of the Dec. 14 shooting that left 26 dead, including 20 students.

Does anyone know if there is a coordinated effort to donate school supplies? I'm sure most of the students fled without their backpacks, notebooks, and desk stuff. Any way to get supplies to the new school?

Hi Colleen, maybe this will help. The first selectman sent out a message on that and it's in the pdf attached to this article: http://patch.com/A-0zdn

I believe I read that everything from Sandy Hook Elementary including coats, backpacks, and even drawings will be transferred to Chalk Hill so the kids can feel more comfortable.

Tractor Trailers have been loaded and are taking everything from Sandy Hook to Chalk Hill..including pictures already drawn and posted on the walls. I am so glad they aren't returning to Sandy Hook and this school is being conformed to these little children.

Thank you for the very nice way to donate online to United Way Western Connecticut for Sandy Hook School Support Fund. Mom sends her love, 1931-1943 1st-12th grades there. :-) Judy Hill-Sullivan
