NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - Students in Newtown, Conn., have completed their first day of classes since a gunman carried out a massacre in an elementary school there last week.

Only students at Sandy Hook Elementary, the shooting site, didn't return to classes Tuesday.

The town also played host to back-to-back funerals for two first-graders who were among the dead.

The services for James Mattioli and Jessica Rekos were the first of eight to be held in coming days at a Roman Catholic church in town.

Gunman Adam Lanza shot his mother Friday, then headed to Sandy Hook and killed 20 children, six adults and himself.
