NEWTOWN, Conn. (PIX11) – Newtown is getting a visit from former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

She’s expected there Friday to meet with families of the victims from last month’s massacre.

It’s been two years now since Giffords was shot in her home state of Arizona.

Students from Sandy Hook Elementary returned to classes Thursday at a school in a nearby town.
