We Couldn't Do This Without You Thank you Classified Staff!

Our more than 800 classified staff members have been on my mind lately — as Classified Employees Appreciation Week is March 5-9. These staff members are a very diverse group who do so much for our schools. Frankly, it's pretty astonishing how much these staff members accomplish each day.

Our bus drivers transport more than 5,000 student to school every day.

Our maintenance and custodial crews maintain more than 2.21 million square feet of school building space.

Our Nutrition Services staff members serve more than 17,000 meals every school day. That's more than 2.5 million meals a year!

Our Information Technology staff members support more than 25,000 devices, from computers to iPads.

Our more than 300 educational assistants support students and teachers in our schools — assisting with reading groups, special programs and so much more.

As for our office staff members - I found it hard to come up with a stat that could adequately measure the duties these staff members perform. (Perhaps number of visitors greeted, multiplied by excel spreadsheets open at one time, minus subs needed that day, divided by the number of ice packs handed out.)

I hope you'll join me in saying thank you to our classified staff members for all that they do to make our schools exceptional.

Thank you for your time and dedication. Thank you for all you do!

Shay Mikalson, Superintendent
