In a 5-4 vote, the Wausau School Board decided to give parents the option to send kids back to school in person starting November 2.
For Sherri Esslinger, who has five kids in the Wausau School District, the decision is a game changer. She said it's been hard to keep her kids focused on school while also having to focus on being a student herself.
"Maybe about a quarter of the time, they participate. I can't watch them all the time," she said.
