The demolition of Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School has quietly begun, Newtown’s highest elected official said 10 months after the mass murder.
“Small scale demo activity has begun and will accelerate over the next days,” First Selectwoman Patricia Llodra told television station WVIT, West Hartford, Conn.
“The process of demolition is incremental, staged precisely and executed carefully,” she said. “There is no wrecking-ball action. It is rather a piece-by-piece, section-by-section removal.”
The work site is shielded from public view to prevent anyone from taking photos or videos.
Contractors taking down the school where 20 schoolchildren and six adult staff members were killed Dec. 14 have signed confidentiality agreements, WVIT said.
