The Newtown schools superintendent says they're preparing for a "normal" day when students from Sandy Hook Elementary School return to school for the first time since a gunman killed 20 children and six staff.

Their original school is still being treated as a crime scene, so students will begin attending classes at a refurbished school in the neighboring town of Monroe on Thursday.

Newtown Superintendent Janet Robinson says officials will be doing their best to make students feel at ease. Police reckon it's "the safest school in America."

On Wednesday, the students and their families attended an open house at their new school, which was formerly the Chalk Hill Middle School but renamed as the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Students received gift boxes and shared joyful reunions with teachers.
