The board adopted a resolution of appreciation for custodians.
The resolution is as follows:
"Whereas, custodians frequently go to infinity and beyond the call of duty to help keep schools free of dirt and germs that can cause illnesses; and
Whereas, the custodians in the DeKalb County School System perform a long list of behind the scenes jobs that are very important but often go unnoticed; and
Wheras, the custodians are required to do many tasks at the school that are unappealing and cringe-worthy and they do them with style; and
Whereas, custodians arrive at school long before anyone else and leave after everyone; and
Whereas, DeKalb County Schools could not function properly without our outstanding custodial staff.
Therefore, be it hereby resolved, that the DeKalb County School Board expresses appreciation to the custodians who are constantly going to infinity and beyond to keep our schools clean, safe, and free of germs.
Be it further resolved that October 25, 2012 is declared Custodian Appreciation Day and that each school is encouraged to get students, employees, and parents involved in the 2012 Custodian Appreciation Day Event.
