Residents of Newtown will be deciding whether to tear down Sandy Hook Elementary School or remodel the building and a public hearing will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday at Newtown High School.

About 200 people attended a hearing last Sunday and their ideas were mixed about what should be done with the school where 20 first graders and six staff members were killed.

Town leaders hope to reach a decision by the spring.

While the town is deciding on the future of the school, the board of education approved two large donations to the Newtown School System on Thursday night.

One of them would install 30 security cameras at the temporary Sandy Hook Elementary School, which is located at the former Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe.
