The staff at my school is great to work with,I like that the job is physical, and like to be around the kids.
Day Custodian in a elementary school, Overland Park KS - July 2, 2015
A typical day is I come in turn off alarm and open the building and put flags up and put out cross walk sign. We have YMCA in our building so I make sue tables are clean and the floor also. I sweep the gym and clean the staff restrooms and the music room and clean the lunchroom restrooms after school has started. I then make sure all outer doors are secured and clean front entrance and office windows if needed. I then set up my lunchroom which consists of setting out tables and getting stuff for cleaning the tables for lunch ready. I then take a lunch break right before lunch starts. I check restrooms during lunch and sweep in between lunches and clean tables and then take trash out. We have three lunch shifts at my school which take about 2 hours. When lunch is over I clean all tables and put them away and sweep the floor and run automatic scrubber over the floor and mop the areas a can't reach with scrubber. I take out all trash including the kitchen trash and all boxes and I also do this during lunch also. I then mop the kitchen and I also check the perimeter doors again after lunch is over to make sure building is secure. I take care of anything the office needs me to through out the day also like vomit and blood on anything or restroom clean ups.
