Congratulations to the Fridley Public Schools March 2019 Employee of the Month – the custodial and grounds team at Fridley Public Schools!
“Throughout the winter, our custodial and grounds team has put in extra time before school, after school, and on the weekends,” said Buildings and Grounds Director Jason Bichler. “They have been doing everything they can to keep the schools safe for students and staff.”
In January and February 2019, the Twin Cities metro area experienced record-breaking amounts of snowfall and dangerous wind-chill. With the extreme weather, the custodial and grounds team worked tirelessly at all schools and buildings across the district removing snow, deicing, cleaning, and doing all they can to ensure the safety of others.
“I could not be more proud of the overall team effort that has taken place with employees,” said Bichler. “No matter if we are dealing with machinery that is down, or dangerous wind chills – the team still does what is needed to make the facilities as safe as possible. They have been doing an awesome job and it shows!”
Fridley Public Schools would like to give a big thank you to the 23 members of the custodial and grounds team! We appreciate your hard work!
