BOONE COUNTY — When school is out for summer, Boone County Schools’ maintenance and custodial staff kick things into high gear to complete a variety of projects.


Director of Facilities and Maintenance Josh Bacchus wants to thank those staff members whom work to keep Boone County Schools in top condition.


“They are the people who do everything,” said Bacchus. “They give our community and our kids the best possible learning environment.”


Each summer custodial staff prepares facilities for the coming year by cleaning, waxing, repairing and fixing various things and projects. An additional floor crew this summer worked on projects, while paint crews assisted and also did many jobs, Bacchus said.


The facilities and maintenance staffs are responsible for 18 total buildings in the Boone County school system.


“Many think nothing happens around the schools during summer time, but we completed projects at every school this summer, expect for Ashford,” he said. “We are doing a project there just after school starts.”
