PLASP Celebrates Custodians
PLASP children and staff have been showing their appreciation to custodial staff since the re-opening of programs last month. We’ve had to be flexible this year as we weren’t able to return to school for our week-long PLASP Custodian’s Week celebration (typically around Valentine’s Day), but wanted to be sure to recognize the dedication and contributions of these individuals all the same!
Custodians play a key role in keeping PLASP children and staff safe. On top of daily in-school safety checks ranging from fire alarms systems checks, to the mechanical maintenance of boiler rooms, heating and cooling systems, and more, custodians are also responsible for the daily thorough cleaning and sanitizing as part of enhanced cleaning protocols to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
PLASP children created handmade gifts and cards for the custodial staff at their program location.
“Custodians play an important role to ensure the health and safety of the children and staff at school and we at PLASP recognize this. We wanted to make sure that we show our appreciation and let them know that they matter!” – JiJi El Talmas, PLASP Program Director
“The children put together beautifully decorated gifts containing hot chocolate mix and made a card to let our custodians know how much we appreciate them.” –Chandra Sahai, PLASP Program Director
PLASP shows appreciation to the over 780 custodians across Peel and Toronto employed by the school boards that PLASP partners with, who on a daily basis ensure the health and safety of the of the thousands of PLASP children and staff in our programs.
