And for what it's worth, I am a year or two younger than Rory, depending on how you look at it (Born 2 years after her in 1986, graduated 1 year after her in 2004), and I went to high school in Upstate NY. My school didn't let out on 9/11, and we even transferred classes as normal, but we didn't do any work in them-just sat and watched the news and talked with our teachers. I do remember exactly which class I was in when it happened and who I was with. I know the teacher who was with us remembers exactly who was there too. So I imagine it would be a similar experience for the kids in CT, although of course I have no idea how different schools and communities reacted.
