On October 2, National Custodial Worker’s Recognition Day encourages appreciation to the employees who keep our schools running smoothly. 

Custodial workers operate behind the scenes. They are often under-appreciated for the hard work they do day after day, too. These are the personnel keeping our buildings clean and well maintained.

While delivering outstanding services and running a well-maintained building, they contribute to critical first impressions and the success of our schools. They’re the people we call on to give our brick-and-mortar schools a polished look. Our schools look organized and presentable because custodial workers efficiently keep everything in top condition.

Additionally, their skill saves our taxpayers money. Well-maintained carpets and surfaces last longer. Seasonal updates and maintenance help buildings to run more efficiently, too. Custodial workers make sure buildings are ready for each season and running correctly. As a result, the buildings are safer and healthier for those entering them. They also free up time for the rest of the educational staff to focus on teaching and caring for our students.

Thank you to our custodians!!!
