Chalk Hill hasn’t been used as a school since June 2011. Volunteers and town officials have been making it suitable for elementary school students.

Monroe Superintendent of Schools James Agostine’s office says the school will reopen after Jan. 1 but a date hasn’t been set. Newtown school officials will decide.

Monroe police Lt. Brian McCauley says authorities are trying to make sure the school is safe for when Newtown officials send teachers and students there.
