(NECN) - Students and staff from Sandy Hook Elementary School return to class nearly three weeks after the tragic shooting that claimed the lives of 20 children and six adults at the Newtown, Conn. school.

Students, teachers, and staff will be attending a school seven miles away from Sandy Hook - in neighboring Monroe, Conn.

Dr. Ovsanna Leyfer, Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the Child and Adolescent Fear and Anxiety Treatment Program at the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University, joined "The Morning Show" to discuss the transition back to school for survivors.

She discussed how students and staff can get back into a routine following the tragedy and whether or not the new school being recreated as an exact replica of Sandy Hook helps or hurts with the process of moving forward.
