WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) -- It just felt different. That's what students all across the Washington-area and all across the country, no doubt,were saying about being in school on Monday, the first day back in class since 20 young children and six adults were shot to death inside Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday.

At the Clinton Christian School in Upper Marlboro, a special prayer service was held in the morning to remember the victims of the shooting, and the flag outside the school was flown at half-staff, as were flags outside most area schools, where a lot of parents described a certain anxiety about dropping their kids off today, even though, as a precautionary measure, security at many schools was significantly heavier and more visible than usual.
