NEWTOWN, CT - There are no classes today at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., and officials aren't sure if the school will ever reopen.
Three days after a gunman killed 20 children and six adults there, the school district is making plans to send surviving students to a former school building in a neighboring town.
The first funerals are planned today for two of the children who were killed -- six-year-olds Jack Pinto and Noah Pozner. Others are scheduled for later in the week.
At an interfaith service in Newtown last night, President Barack Obama vowed to enlist the help of police, mental health professionals, parents and teachers in an effort to prevent similar tragedies in the future. He asked, "What choice do we have?"
Federal agents, meanwhile, continue to investigate the recent activities of the shooter, Adam Lanza, who took his own life as police moved in on a classroom where he was killing children using a high-powered rifle. They've concluded that he had visited an area shooting range, but they don't know whether he actually practiced shooting there.
