Two of the chid victims of the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn. will be buried Monday, according to the Daily Beast.

When school will resume, and the location when it does, had not been decided yet.

The Associated Press reported:

Newtown officials couldn't say whether Sandy Hook Elementary, where authorities said all the victims were shot at least twice, would ever reopen. State police Lt. Paul Vance said Monday at a news conference that it could be months before police turn the school back over to the district.

Monday classes were canceled and Newtown's other schools were to reopen Tuesday. The district was making plans to send surviving Sandy Hook students to a former school building in a neighboring town, but they didn't say when that would happen.
The funerals planned Monday are for Jack Pinto and Noah Pozner, both 6. Pinto will be buried in wide recover VIctor Cruz's jersey.

More funerals are planned for the rest of the week.



Craig Gillespie directed this true story about "the most daring rescue mission in the history of the U.S. Coast Guard.”
