The entire Operations Team has been working nonstop to provide for our students and families and get our division ready for the school year. Every day, they are involved in work that is critical to our current and future success.
Custodians are on the front lines of the essential effort to create safe and healthy environments for students and staff. They are preparing buildings and implementing new protocols, while under intense scrutiny. They will provide extra layers of cleaning and sanitizing daily and will mobilize should deep cleaning response be necessary.
If you stop to speak to any member of the custodial team, you get a smile and pleasant conversation— proof that these folks are vital to our organization in more ways than just keeping our space clean and safe. No matter how hard their work or how late the hour, they offer a bit of heart, humor, and care.
These teams reflect the exceptional leadership provided by Brian Weaver, Julie Jones, Michael Pittman, and Howard Wallace.
Every time you enter a building, remember that our custodial team’s Heroes have made sure you are in a safe, sanitized, and hopeful space.
Grab & Go has become the face of Operations and a regular opportunity for families and staff to connect. Jane Haley has led this multifaceted effort that involves child nutrition, custodial, and transportation staff. Three days a week, whether it is cold and rainy or hot and humid, these crews are there to hand out meals, smiles, and encouragement to our school families. They have formed communities, knowing that the driver of that red sedan has been going through a rough time and needs a word of support, or the student in the van had a birthday and deserves an extra cheer.
For providing more than 144,037 breakfast and lunch meals and immeasurable goodwill since March, our Grab & Go teams are Heroes of Hope.
Thank you, Operations, for keeping us going year-round.
