Sandy Hook School Building Task Force

The Sandy Hook Building Task Force voted to tear down the old school and build a new one on the same site of the old Sandy Hook School. They received an immediate standing ovation from most of those in attendance. Lorna Szalay, of Sandy Hook, and the manager of the Sandy Hook School kitchen, was one of them.

Szalay was at Sandy Hook School the day of the shooting, and is now managing the kitchen at the Monroe school renamed Sandy Hook. Immediately after the vote she started to cry tears of joy, not only because that is what she felt was right, but because “We now know where we’re going,” she said.
