HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT) - School safety is the reason for construction in the Holmen School District.
Two new entries are being constructed at the Middle and High School this summer as part of a nearly three-million dollar project.
Once completed, the new entry doors will make it safer for students and staff by adding an extra layer of security.
"There will actually be an administrative assistant that will make visual contact with people coming in and then that administrative assistant will open the door and let people in," said Bob Baer, Holmen High School Principal.
The school district is also adding additional parking at the high school, as well as improving athletic facilities.
The projects are expected to be completed before the school year starts.
