Should Sandy Hook School reopen to survivors?

I received an email from the parent of a Sandy Hook student who survived and she has a very important question for Columbine survivors about whether kids should go to a new school or return to Sandy Hook. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below as I think it will be really helpful for their community.

"Our community is beginning to discuss what should be done with the school and I'm trying to make an informed plea. My child can't wait to go back to Sandy Hook School. We've discussed the possibility and her feelings surrounding it and she just wants to go back so desperately. I'm writing to you to see if I can get some insight into the feelings of those students who returned to Columbine and whether or not they found any peace and healing.  I'd like to hear the opinions of some of those who have lived through this type of experience so that I can make a plea to the school board as the decision is being made as to the future of SHS. I'm hoping that you can give me some feedback or point me in a direction where I can get the information in the most efficient way. I appreciate any time you can give me."

Thank you everyone!
