School is back in session at Platte Canyon High School for the first time since a gunman took six hostages last week, killing a 16-year-old girl and then himself.
Pink ribbons marked the highway leading to the Bailey, Colorado high school and volunteers handed out Teddy Bears as students wrapped up their first day back.
One student, sophomore Hanna Mladjan, says going back to school is a little scary, but it's important to get back into the routine after her mountain community was shaken by tragedy.
School officials say only 17 of the schools 769 students failed to show up for Thursday's first day back.
Autopsy results released Thursday show the gunman, 53-year-old drifter Duane Morrision, was shot four times, three times by SWAT officers, once by his own hand. It was the shot he fired that killed him.
