North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino reopens today with extra staff and tight security, just a week after the deadly shooting that took the life of special education teacher Karen Elaine Smith and 8-year-old student Jonathan Martinez.  9-year-old Nolan Brandy, who was wounded in the classroom shooting, is recovering at home since being released Friday after five days in the hospital. 

Today, in support of North Park and those affected by the shooting, administrators, teachers, and students across the San Bernardino district  will wear red.  Another dedication to the victims was orchestrated over the weekend by students who showed their support during the most important competition of their lives.  KVCR's Rick Dulock has more.
