Custodial Appreciation Day

Join APS in celebrating our nearly 280 amazing custodians who are dedicated to maintaining our buildings and keeping our schools and facilities clean, enjoyable and operating smoothly year-round for students, staff and visitors. Thank your custodians on social media using #CustodialWorkerDay.The job of the custodian is about far more than maintenance—it’s about supporting our students. Custodians are often behind the scenes—the first to arrive and the last to leave—working on snow days to clear safe paths to school, preparing classrooms so that students have clean, supporting school events, monitoring lunch, moving furniture and boxes from classroom to classroom, sealing gymnasium floors and stages, attending training to update their skills, inspecting buildings, maintaining exterior grounds, and much, much more.In addition to their daily contributions, our custodial staff played an essential role in preparing to open five new schools this year. Getting prepared to move programs and open new schools required significant moves and transitions, and our custodial staff was at the center of this work.
