NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Contractors demolishing Sandy Hook Elementary School are being required to sign confidentiality agreements forbidding public discussion of the site, photographs or disclosure of any information about the building where 26 people were fatally shot last December.

Selectman Will Rodgers said officials want to protect the Newtown school where the 20 children and six educators were killed, The News-Times reported.

“It’s a very sensitive topic,” he said Monday. “We want it to be handled in a respectful way.”
