Cleaning Descriptions and Teams

General Instructions

Each week one person/family will be selected from each team to clean a designated area at the end of the school day. An email will be sent out on the loop one and two weeks prior to your turn. If you are unable to perform your service that week, please let Nancy H. know so she can trade your spot with another person/family.

Little changes have been made to the job descriptions, so please read the information under your assigned task. Thank you for giving of your time to gratefully put the building back in order for our host church! When we all pitch in like this, it is easier for everyone.

The building should be cleaned thoroughly each week with each family serving a few times per year. If you have been assigned a job that you (or an older child) are unable to do, please let Nancy or Christie know, and they will trade you to a different job.

If you find your assigned area consistently very messy, please let the director know. Teachers should be spot checking floors and wiping tables, and having students gather as much debris as possible.

All supplies are located either in the supply-room or in the adjacent hallway. When supplies are running low, please make a note of it on the supply-room purchasing list and if the vacuum is not working well, please let the supply-room coordinator know.
