Ugh. We don't even know what to say about this.

Filmmaker Jonathan Bucari is making a movie using the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings as a backdrop- and he's filming it on the outskirts of Newtown!

Unspecified Threat Closes Second CT Elementary School As Precautionary Measure

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

newtown ct head omeadow elementary school unspecified threat sandy hook shootings

As the other schools in Newtown, Connecticut were about to reopen their doors to students this morning, Head O'Meadow Elementary School received an unspecified threat and was forced to stay close for one more day.

Authorities predicted potential copycat threats and intended to prepare for the worst, so police were at the school as a precaution before the threat was even made.

Thankfully, the other schools in Sandy Hook Elementary's district were scheduled to start two hours late today, so no students were at Head O'Meadow when the threat was made.

No additional info has been released on the specific nature of the new threat.

We continue to keep the victims of Friday's tragic crime and the entire Newtown, CT community in our thoughts and prayers.

Her paster explains the first grader was "covered in blood" when police found her inside the school's most devastated classroom.

Watch the video (above) to hear this incredible little girl's heroic, tragic story.

We can't even imagine how horrible that must have been for her. NO child deserves to see what she has seen!

Our country MUST take action to see that this never happens again!
