Construction crews are set to begin demolition on Friday of the Sandy Hook Elementary School building where 20 students and six educators were killed last December.
Newtown residents earlier this month voted in favor of accepting a $50 million grant from the state of Connecticut to construct a new building at the site of the shooting. The structure closed after the tragedy on Dec. 14. Students completed the 2012-2013 academic year and recently returned in August to Chalk Hill Middle School in nearby Monroe.
