CONNECTICUT (PIX11) – Nearly 3 weeks after 26 of their fellow students and teachers were gunned down, children and families from the Sandy Hook School returned to class Thursday.

The students will attend class at a middle school in the nearby town of Monroe. In an effort to make the transition smooth, movers have brought everything over from Sandy Hook Elementary including furniture and school supplies. There’s also increased security measures.

The children and their families got a preview of the new school Wednesday.
