Our Buildings and Grounds team’s mission is to insure the safety and welfare of all students and staff through a quality maintenance program and adherence to the cleaning standards as adopted by our Board of Education. We recognize that our school buildings represent at substantial investment by our community. As such, the buildings will be maintained in good condition using a continuous program of repair, replacement, and preventative maintenance.
Some of the responsibilities of the team include the inspection and maintenance of all school buildings and the exterior grounds, including a monthly inspection of all playground systems; cleaning of building areas; performing preventative maintenance; monthly inspection of fire extinguishers and emergency exit lights; lawn and athletic field maintenance; painting; responding to work orders; distribution of commodities; snow removal; maintenance of building heating plants; and general carpentry, electrical, and plumbing repairs.
