Wausau school doors to remain locked starting Tuesday


School starts in Wausau on Tuesday, but with a new year come new safety rules.

According to the Wausau School District, all doors at the schools' main entrances will be locked after classes begin September 3.

District leaders say the doors will remain locked throughout the day. Visitors must buzz into the office and explain why they're there.

The district made this change after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December.
