The Custodial Department oversees the custodial operations at the Saugerties Central School District. The dedicated staff members work with each schools’ administrative team to keep schools clean and healthy, while providing a high level of customer service.
Just a few of the many responsibilities the custodial team undertakes in order to ensure a clean, safe and healthy environment include an array of cleaning tasks, solid waste removal, recycling, classroom and gym floor refinishing, and more.
