Cleaning Jobs' Descriptions

General Instructions

Each week one of the weekly cleaning teams will clean a designated area at the end of the school day. As a reminder, 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.

The building is cleaned each week at the end of the school day. 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.
