To the Editor:
Sandy Hook School is a part of our history, a part of our lives. My own family roamed those halls for 14 years. Whether we decide to massively renovate it, or tear it down, I have a request. Can we set aside a day when we can have one last walk-through?
I'm assuming the section of the hallway and the two classrooms are boarded off. That's fine. But to have an opportunity to say goodbye to the rest of the school – I think that's important closure for Sandy Hook School families past and present.
I'd suggest requiring Newtown photo ids, or being accompanied by a Newtowner – to keep out the gawkers. I know that some people never want to step inside that school again – but some of us do, to say goodbye.
