Sandy Hook's 'New Old Principal' Donna Page Felt a Calling to Come Out of Retirement
By CHRISTINA NG at ABC News
When the students at Sandy Hook Elementary School arrive at their new building Thursday, a familiar face will be there to greet them — their "new old principal."
Donna Page (pronounced Pa-jhay), the school's former principal, is leading the new school as interim principal, telling parents it was her "calling" to return after the tragedy. Parents have dubbed her the "new old principal" because Page was the school's leader for 14 years before retiring in 2010.
The school's principal Dawn Hochsprung was among the first victims of Adam Lanza's Dec. 14 rampage that left 20 children and six school staffers dead.
Once the Sandy Hook school had established that they would be able to use the former Chalk Hill Middle School building in nearby Monroe, Conn., parents knew that next biggest obstacle would be finding someone to lead the school through such a traumatic time.
