In honor of School Custodian Day, the Sanford School Department would like to recognize our custodial and maintenance staff's hard work over the summer to make our educational environment clean, safe, and inviting to everyone. The summer is actually the busiest time of the year for the custodial and maintenance crew because they have ten weeks to turn the buildings around and be ready for students and staff in the fall. They deep cleaned every area of our buildings, including washing and removing all the furniture from every room. They then cleaned the rooms from the top down, including lights, windows, and walls, and ended with refinishing the floors or washing the carpets. They also did minor facility repairs, light bulb replacements, and paint touch-ups. During the summer, they also have to attend to daily custodial needs with programs such as Extended School Year, Summer Food Service, and Summer Camps going on. They also created a new welcoming vestibule at Carl J. Lamb School with upgraded LED lights, a new ceiling, and an updated reception counter. Additionally, they painted and gave the entire lobby at the school a facelift. The maintenance team also spent a lot of time keeping the lawns at our schools at bay from the rainy summer. We shine the spotlight on our custodial and maintenance teams, who worked diligently behind the scenes to create an optimal learning environment for our students and staff. Their hard work and attention to detail make them vital to our school community.

This is the third house built by the students at SRTC in collaboration with the Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Maine. Students in our Building Trades, Electrical and Plumbing programs all contributed to its construction and the horticulture program assisted with the landscaping. It is being offered for sale to Sanford School Department employees and Sanford first responders before it is offered to the general public so they may have the opportunity to live in the community where they provide essential services to the residents of Sanford.
