– Janet Robinson, Newtown Superintendent of schools
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 are returning to classes after last month's shootings at US elementary school Sandy Hook, in a neighbouring Connecticut town.
