LHS Update

October 10, 2018

Thank you, Custodians!

This month we celebrated Custodian Appreciation Day. One day is simply not enough to recognize the hard work and pride our LHS Custodians do! Recently, a guest speaker sent a letter to our Superintendent telling him what a fabulous job our custodians have done, and that they have never been in a cleaner building. This is TRUE! We have the cleanest building in the state, but we have more than that. Our custodians show up early in the winter to ensure our sidewalks are school ready, reroute the troops in circumstances of the inevitable QT daily spill, keep us safe by ensuring our doors are locked at appropriate times, disinfect and help prevent the spread of the dreaded cold, spend summer waxing and preparing for the next school year, and provide both the students and staff with dedicated role models. Thank you for everything you do. Students, my challenge to you in our quest for kindness is to PLEASE before you leave your tray on your table at lunch, drop a chip bag and continue walking, or leave a "masterpiece" with your leftover food, consider who is cleaning up after you. These men and women are our hardest workers, and we would love you to show your appreciation by cleaning up daily in the cafeteria and elsewhere. Thank you!
