School Custodians - Daytime
The following description of tasks is not intended to outline every last detail of the custodian's position. It will serve to give a general impression of the duties relating to the job. It is hoped that the custodian will gradually assume the position of caretaker of the building and facilities, with the feeling of responsibility of their well-being similar to that which he/she has for their own personal possessions.
The person who will assume the position of custodian is accepting a very important role in the functioning of our school. The custodian will not only be working with maintenance, cleaning, and care, but he will be working with people, especially children. There is a need for the custodian to understand children and their need for guidance. Younger children usually are awed by adults in the school setting and appreciate a smile and a cheery word. They usually are open to suggestions and will cooperate with attempts to be helpful.
