Buildings and Grounds

The buildings and grounds department works to ensure that all of our students, staff members, and visitors enjoy a safe, clean, and appropriate environment to support work and play throughout the district.

Our Facilities

Our qualified custodial and maintenance staff provide services to support four school buildings, several support buildings, and all of the district’s grounds including a stadium and athletic and recreational fields at each school.  Our facilities range from almost 100 years old to currently under construction, which allows us to maintain a link to the district’s historical character while ensuring a 21st century learning environment for our students.  This diversity of resources does, however, create some challenges, in terms of integrating new systems with old and upgrading our facility infrastructure where needed while maintaining fiscal responsibility.
