Who We Are

The Facilities and Operations’ Department is strongly committed to providing a clean and safe environment for our life-long learners. We provide support through thirty-two dedicated, professional employees. On a typical evening, our custodians clean 657,000 square feet of classroom, office, hallway and common areas (the equivalent of cleaning 329 homes every night). Our maintenance staff routinely performs preventative and corrective repairs to plumbing and mechanical equipment, in addition to snow removal, grounds and sports turf maintenance. Finally, the Facilities & Operations Department monitors safe drinking water, pest management, federal and state building requirements, energy management and AHERA, as well as assisting with staff moves and bond construction activities. A SPECIAL THANK YOU to all of our  dedicated and professional operations' staff who ensure a wonderful environment for students to learn.
