Fargo, ND(WDAY TV) - Its day number one for new security measures at Fargo's elementary and middle schools.
The district has been working to install new buzzer systems at schools like Hawthorne Elementary.
All of the elementary and middle schools in town have them.
When anyone approached the now-locked doors, they'll have to press a buzzer.
Then someone in the school's office will ask who they are, what they're doing, then buzz them in.
Broc Lietz/Fargo Public Schools Business Manager: “it was just another step along the way of our commitment to security and safety of our students. We piloted this system a year ago at two of our elementary schools and got good feedback.”
The updates cost about $30,000 with some of the money coming from a grant from the state.
