Custodial Services End of Year Coverage

From Wednesday, 11/25/20 until Friday, 12/18/20 Custodial Services will be performing routine services.  In addition, we will also be performing project work (heavy/detail work) as required and where possible.

From Saturday, 12/19/20 thru Sunday, 1/3/21 Custodial Services will have minimal staffing on campus in support of on-campus students and essential personnel as required.

From Monday, 1/4/21 until resumption of classes Custodial Services will be continuing routine operations and project work. 

Snow removal will continue at all times but focus on occupied areas for campus, accessibility, and life safety. Snow removal will primarily be conducted during daytime hours of operation. This may result in slower response time than what our campus partners have typically come to expect during severe winter storms. 

We ask that office occupants empty all waste and recycling containers before they leave for the break or when transitioning to working from home to prevent odors and pest infiltration.
Custodial services will provide a thorough cleaning of offices before reopening in February.

Thank you.



"On behalf of all Vermonters, I want to extend my deep appreciation to custodial workers across the state who are working overtime to keep our spaces clean and safe. Thank you for helping us slow the spread of COVID-19."  - Gov. Phil Scott
