JCPS students return today, but school work never really stopped

August 18th, 2011 in News

Brad Myers dry mops the cafeteria floor at Simonsen Freshman Center. The award winning custodial staff at the school has been busily preparing for the start of the upcoming school year.

Being a school custodian is not an easy job. And summertime isn't a vacation.

"If they think it's a laid-back job, they've probably never done a custodial job," said Fred Heberlie, custodial supervisor at Simonsen 9th Grade Center.

As students return to the Jefferson City Public Schools classrooms today, they will walk on the shiny floors and sit at the scrubbed desks the custodial staff worked on throughout the summer.
