When “mum” was the word: July 19, 2012.

Cinderella was going through an old trunkful of Sandy Hook Elementary school memorabilia and came across this scrap. Mr. Halbig’s recent appearance in a hearing room in Connecticut reminded her, so in we went, rummaging until we found it.

It’s all about an email exchange on July 19, 2012  between Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung, the former headmistress of Sandy Hook Elementary school, and the school janitor, Kevin Anzellotti. Many of you know about it.

But for the sake of new SH event skeptics, go here to Memory Hole blog for a quick jog.

You’ll find this tete-a-tete:

On the morning of July 19 Hochsprung emails Anzellotti:

“How does this look? [Apparently referring to an attached pdf excluded from the document disclosure.] NOT set in stone! I have to notify teachers after we meet next Thursday, then we can get moving. Of course, they will need to come in and pack… This is going to be really hard!”

That afternoon Anzellotti responds:

“I got it and it is what it is it’sbad [sic] for us but I would not what to [sic] be in your shoes as your telling them but all still have jobs I guess that’s a good thing mums the word [sic]”

We have Mr. Halbig to thank for his diligence in wading through 200+ emails to find this snippet. Unfortunately, the link to the original doc has been broken, but here is what it looked like:

Email with Janitor

I find it helps to review old mail. Cinderella does this after a breakup to discover exactly where things began to fall apart. Of course, in Sandy Hook Elementary School’s case, I think things were beginning to crumble long before this email!

What do you think?
