Sandy Hook report to be released Monday

A 40-page summary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting investigation will be released Monday, according to the office of the Chief State’s Attorney.

The office will release details today on when, and how, the report will be released on Monday.

Newtown school administrators are preparing parents and staff members for the release of the Sandy Hook investigation report expected on Monday and the media onslaught that will surely follow.

In a letter sent to parents Wednesday, School Superintendent John Reed said that he has been informed that the long-awaited report will be released to the public Monday.

“I wanted you to have time to think about steps you choose to take to limit media exposure,” Reed wrote. “Depending on the age of your child or children, I think it is advisable to carefully consider what you want them to see, hear or read.”

Also on Monday, Judge Eliot Prescott is expected to issue a decision on the release of the Sandy Shook 911 recordings.

The 40-minutes of recordings are the subject of a legal battle between Danbury State’s Attorney Stephen J. Sedensky III, who is leading the investigation into the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, and the state Freedom of Information Commission, which in September ordered that the phone conversations be made public. Sedensky appealed that order.
