MIAMI (AP) - There's a new challenge facing schoolteachers across the country today -- as they face nervous and frightened students, looking for reassurance and answers following Friday's shooting that left 20 children dead at a Connecticut elementary school.

In Connecticut, state education officials are providing schools around the state with written guidance to help classroom teachers address the shooting in Newtown with their students.

One history teacher in Florida says, "It's going to be a tough day."

The superintendent of a Minnesota school district says a mental health consultant will meet with school officials today.

Many schools will hold a moment of silence today, and will fly flags at half-staff.

School administrators have pledged to add police patrols, review security plans and make guidance counselors available.
