MONROE, Conn. — The Monroe Police Department will be using Chalk Hill School for police training, according to an announcement from School Superintendent Jim Agostine.
Agostine is advising residents to be aware of the police presence on Sept. 20, Sept. 30 and Oct. 4 for the training.
"The training will occur indoors but you may observe a large number of police vehicles in the parking lot," Agostine said in a statement. "Please do not be alarmed."
Chalk Hill School, which was permanently closed is empty this fall. It had housed the students from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown from January 2013 until June 2016 after the deadly shootings there. Those students returned to Newtown and attend classes in a new building as of this fall.
