The road between Newtown and Monroe has been lined with signs of support for the pupils who escaped the Sandy Hook shootings last month.
The children will return to school, attending the Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe, Connecticut, which will be re-named after their former school.
Nearly three weeks ago gunman Adam Lanza killed 20 students and six staff at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
Lanza killed his mother at their Newtown home that they shared, before the shootings, which ended when Lanza fatally shot himself as police arrived.

We want to get back to teaching and learning.
We will obviously take time out from the academics for any conversations that need to take place, and there will be a lot of support there.
All in all, we want the kids to reconnect with their friends and classroom teachers, and I think that's going to be the healthiest thing.
Children will return to classes after last month's shootings at a US elementary school, in a neighbouring Connecticut town.
The student's new school, the former Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe, has been renamed Sandy Hook Elementary School, after their old one.
Newtown Superintendent of schools Janet Robinson made the announcement after a news conference in Monroe.
She said: "That's who they are. They're the Sandy Hook family."
The school where the shootings took place remains closed, officials have not yet decided on the building's future.
