Sandy Hill School Students to Relocate to Neighboring Monroe Facility

Mark Wilson/Getty Images(NEWTOWN, Conn.) – Sandy Hill School students and staff will be relocated to a facility in the neighboring town of Monroe, a State Department Education official confirmed to ABC News.

Newtown Board of Education and Superintendent Janet Robinson released the following statement Sunday:

"We have been working to find a new home for our Sandy Hook School community. The Town of Monroe has graciously offered their Chalk Hill School. This facililty which is currently not being used, is in excellent condition and will accommodate all of the Sandy Hill School students and staff. It is located just across the border from Newtown and should be ready for occupancy in just a few days.

Our staff is currently working to prepare the building for the process of resuming classes. We will be able to publish the exact schedule shortly.

We want to thank Monroe for helping us is this hour of need, not only by loaning this facility but also helping us prepare the building. We also want to thank the Governor's office and other state departments and his staff who has expedited the approvals for this move.

As we have previously published, all Newtown Schools will be closed on Monday. All schools except Sandy Hook will open at the regular time on Tuesday. We will be publishing the date for the opening of Sandy Hook at Chalk Hill shortly.

Thank you all for your patience and support."
