Working While the Schools Are Closed
No students. No teachers. But our schools are very busy during the summer even though they are closed to the public in July.

Our youthful part-time summer staff works tirelessly with our custodians, cleaning every inch of the classrooms, halls and lockers. Everything is wiped down and cleaned for the new year, from top to bottom.

It's isolating work. But this is the one job where you can plug into your music to help the days go by.
