The shooting that left 26 people dead in Newtown, Connecticut last week was on the minds of many as a new school week got underway Monday in Kuna.
The tragedy—six adults and 20 children gunned down inside Sandy Hook Elementary—was a topic for discussion among many Kuna School District teachers, staff and administrators, as well as many of the students who came to school Monday.
District-wide, attendance was slightly lower than normal.
“We do have a few parents who decided not to send their kids today,” said KSD Superintendent Jay Hummel, noting he understood why Kuna parents, like many others across the country, were so concerned. “The shooting in Connecticut is giving everyone pause; it’s a horrible tragedy, and it’s very hard to comprehend how something like this could happen, and happen in a very conservative, safe community much like our own.”
