Where were the Sandy Hook children in the Newtown schools?

Anonymous Student with Jim Fetzer
One of the key claims for those who believe Sandy Hook “massacre” to be a false flag is that the school was closed in 2008, as Dr. Eowyn and others contend in Nobody Died at Sandy Hook (2015). This claim is mainly based on evidence of no Internet activity since 2008, obvious disrepair of the school, serious environmental problems such as asbestos contamination, no updating of parking signs to reflect then-current disability laws, eyewitness testimony that pointed to the school’s closure, and  the inability/unwillingness of Newtown School officials to provide documents of maintenance activity at the school after 2008. 
For abundant proof of the deplorable condition of Sandy Hook Elementary School, go to “SANDY HOOK: Wolfgang Halbig goes for the jugular in FOIA hearings” (8 May 2015), which includes the following interview in which Wolfgang reviews the deplorable condition of the school building:

To counter that claim, supporters of the mainstream media and official government accounts argue that references in the Newtown Bee newspaper archives prove that Sandy Hook Elementary was still operating up to 2012. Most of these references are only in passing and, of course, archived accounts could have been altered after the fact. But, the Newtown Bee article by Eliza Halleback (20 August 2010) addressing an expert’s report on projected decreases in school enrollment only deepens the mystery of Sandy Hook:  
In that article, a presentation of Hyung Chung before the Newtown School Board is mentioned. Dr. Chung, Ph.D., a planning consultant, discussed a precipitous fall in Newtown births from 372 in 1997 to only 192 in 2009—a drop of 48%. This drop would have averaged 15 per year over the 12-year period. The K-4 elementary population in Newtown in 2012 (the date of the Sandy Hook massacre) would have been born in the five-year period from 2003-2007. Assuming a linear drop in births per year, the number of births would have ranged from 282 in 2003 to 222 in 2007, for a total of 1260 students. But, strangely enough, a 29 June 2017 Wikipedia entryfor the Newtown Public Schools lists combined student totals in 2012 for allfour of the Newtown elementary schools (including Sandy Hook) of 1840:  
Without Sandy Hook’s 575 students included, the total of the other three K-4 schools in Wikipediawas 1265—almost perfectly matchingthe birth numbers from Dr. Chung’s presentation! It should be noted that, while Dr. Chung also mentioned about 10% of the Newtown student population was in private schools, but he did not mention specifically the percentage of K-4 students in private schools, which means it is not clear whether the birth drop was totally linear from 1997-2009. Even so, it is striking how the number of total public school students in Newtown K-4 according to Wikipedia is close to Dr. Chung’s predictions if Sandy Hook was indeed closed in 2008 but is almost 50% in excess if Sandy is included.
This analysis suggests that Newtown, a wealthy enclave with an aging population would have seriously needed to close schools after 2000. The obvious choice would be Sandy Hook with its serious, well-documented environmental problems. But why would Sandy Hook then be mentioned in the newspaper archives and included in the obviously discrepant student totals in Wikipedia after 2008? Is it possible that Sandy Hook was kept alive in a mythical form for four years in anticipation of the events of December 2012? If so, was the Sandy Hook massacre planned years in advance, as so many other “false flags” allegedly have been?

NOTE: One more discrepancy–WIkipedia lists 575 students enrolled at Sandy Hook while the official figure on 14 December 2012 were 489.  With 20 officially dead, that meant there were 469 to evacuate. But dashcam footage shows no evacuation took place. Typical absence rates for schools is about 5%, but there were almost 15% absent at Sandy Hook Elementary School that day–if the numbers had any reality (which they don’t).

Indeed, according to local paper The Newtown Bee, nearly 10 months after the shooting on October 5, 2013, a city referendum passed by over 90% authorizing Newtown to move forward with the demolition and rebuilding of Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) with a $49.25 million grant from the State of Connecticut. The Bee says: “Anticipating the referendum would pass, town officials already filed environmental paperwork with the state to move forward with asbestos abatement at the former school, which will dovetail with demolition crews who could be on site by the last week in October.”
What this means is that even without the alleged massacre, the school would have been demolished because of asbestos contamination.
In fact, a search of Newtown Bee‘s archives shows that the town had known about the school’s environmental problems for many years:
  • On October 2, 2002, The Bee reports that “The Newtown School District could be looking at a $29.5 million price tag to upgrade its mechanical systems and bring them to code at the four elementary schools and middle school over the next five to six years. Consulting Engineering Services (CES) was hired by the district to study the mechanical systems at Hawley School, Head O’ Meadow School, Middle Gate School, Newtown Middle School, and Sandy Hook School to evaluate the heating and ventilating infrastructure, temperature control, and to see what renovations would need to be performed to upgrade ventilation systems to meet indoor air quality codes. Sandy Hook School … is being recommended by CES to be worked on in 2010 over a nine-month period. It is estimated to cost $4.5 million for heating and ventilation and $400,000 for air conditioning.” That comes to about $5 million, which is puny compared to the $49.25 million state grant Newtown received after the alleged shooting massacre for the demolition and rebuilding of the school. 
  • On April 7, 2003, the Bee reported that “Some studies suggest that as many as 68 percent of school district’s have ‘sick’ buildings ranging from mold to asbestos, radon, pesticides, and the use of improperly ventilated areas as classroom space. For the past five years, teachers in Connecticut have had the highest rate of occupational asthma when compared to other professions.
  • On March 26, 2004 , the Bee reported that “the Board of Education … received the bad news that there were serious problems with the Sandy Hook elementary school roof.”
  • And then there’s this curious Newtown Bee article of November 7, 2008, 4 years before the alleged shooting massacre: “The asbestos levels in Newtown schools pose no threat to the health or safety of those using the schools, according to Superintendent John Reed. The areas in the schools where there is evidence of asbestos … are also considered acceptable and safe.”
  • On October 12, 2012, two months before the alleged school shooting, there’s this curious letter from reader Charles Hepp to The Newtown Beeabout a plan to close an elementary school due to declining enrollment. Hepp wrote, “Six months ago, in April 2012, our Board of Ed voted unanimously to accept a study which laid out a plan for closing an elementary school … the study found that, should our elementary school population fall below 1,500, the BOE should look towards closing an elementary school. We are currently at approximately 1,650 elementary school students.”
  • But then a year after the alleged massacre and after the school had been completely torn down with the demolition workers sworn to confidentiality, The Bee reported on Dec. 2, 2013 that Public Building & Site Commission Chairman Robert Mitchell issued a report that directly contradicts the earlier 2008 assessment that asbestos levels in Newtown’s schools posed no threat to health. Mitchell’s report said “had the town decided to reoccupy the [Sandy Hook Elementary] school on Dickinson Drive, it would have faced a daunting and possibly insurmountable challenge regarding the presence of hazardous materials” because “PCBs were not only discovered in concrete block, but under terrazzo flooring and in sulfur block used in the foundations and footings. In addition, vinyl asbestos tile was discovered under carpeted areas, along with asbestos in the mastic holding insulation to the subfloor tunnel ductwork.”

Sandy Hook had been abandoned


What we have found–building upon and reporting the previous work of reasonvoice, Dr. Eowyn, Jungle Surfer and others–we have now established the following:

(a) that there was no computer activity at Sandy Hook Elementary School from 2008-2012;
(b) that Sandy Hook Elementary School was non-compliant with Connecticut’s ADA requirements;
(c) that Sandy Hook Elementary School was in violation of Connecticut’s own fire codes;
(d) that Sandy Hook Elementary School was in deplorable condition as a bio-hazard.

These circumstances could be explained with high probability if Sandy Hook Elementary School had been abandoned in 2008 and was being used by the school district as a storage facility, but they are inexplicable if Sandy Hook Elementary School had been operating during that interval of time.

It appears to have been the ideal location to use as stage setting for a shooting drill that would be presented to the world as a children’s massacre, where the American people have been played for saps by (what appears to have been) a cleverly constructed hoax intended to promote gun control and the subversion of the 2nd Amendment and thereby advance the political agenda of the Obama administration.

  2. No, I'm not one of the scammers. I believe SH was a hoax. But that was the info I found online. I thought it super-odd that her cert expired on 6-29-17. Like you said "just expired the day of the post." And also odd that there is no record of her certification under the name "Lafferty." You're right, certificates do stay online even if the teacher has died – I checked this, too, with the name of a deceased teacher. So whatever is going on, it's very weird. Dang if I know who's behind it. But it isn't me, I can assure you.

  3. Fetzer, the spooks who are blackmailing you want you to know that you need to pump this bullshit story more and harder or the child porn tapes WILL be released. Thank you for your attention.

  4. Wait a minute—what??!!! Her certificate just expired the day of this post? What kind of scam are you trying to run here? I checked that database several times and there was NO certificate there at all! This is absolute bullshit and you are in on this scam. That information was NOT there! Not until I posted yesterday that it wasn't. You people are criminals and you know what you are doing! You had it expire so we could not see the certificate because it does not freaking exist! That is not how states do this. The info and the certificate STAYS online whether it is expired or not, and is visible to anyone who looks. You may think you are smart but you are not. Not even a little bit!

  5. Different states evidently have varying systems for providing operating funds for public schools. Some money is collected locally in the form of property or other taxes; other funds are collected by the state in other forms of taxation such as sales taxes, etc. In some cases the local money may be sent to the state and then returned to pay for school operation. Either way, the state must have detailed records for operations of public schools. We know the local school board is totally corrupt from the efforts of Wolfgang. But has anyone sought to examine the records in the department of education in the state of Connecticut? Even if kids names were redacted, at minimum there must be records which would prove, unequivocally, that a particular school, such as Sandy Hook was open or closed in a given year. The State office of education is at a higher level than the local one in Newtown. Although this is a small state, it must be possible to examine the public records, possibly even online, without disclosing reasons to a clerk, to simply discover absolutely the exact years a school was open or closed. If Sandy Hook was closed from 2008 on, these state records should show this fact clearly since they provided state money for operations which had to be documented by the local school board to them in the form of monthly reports. If I were researching this I would first talk to someone knowledgeable in Connecticut about the details of how the reporting is done for public schools first, before proceeding to the archives or whatever system they have for storing the information. Obviously one does not want to tip them off of your motives lest they obstruct your efforts as has been done in Newtown. Detailed records are also mandated due to federal funds and federal requirements. Should this effort also fail federal records might reveal the answer. Ask any teacher today: Many detailed records must be kept and maintained today.

  6. If a realtor sold a home in any state in the country knowingly with mold, or asbestos they would be held criminally liable. The same should hold for public buildings, especially public school buildings. And by the way Dawn Hochsprung was NEVER the principal at Sandy Hook Elementary School or any other school in Connecticut for that matter because she does not hold a teaching or administrator certificate. The Connecticut Board of Educators certificate lookup was checked. No one named Dawn Hochsprung or Dawn Lafferty (former name) ever held a teaching or administrator certificate in the state of Connecticut. So who was she??
