August 19, 2011

BRISTOL-WARREN, RI — Nine of Mt. Hope High School''s custodians have been working around the clock to get the school ready for a new year, according to the Birstol-Warren Patch.

While students bask in the freedom of the summer vacation, custodians at the high school have left no nook or cranny untouched, the article stated.

According to the article, the nine custodians have engaged in tasks ranging from scrubbing down walls and desks, to resurfacing the gym floor.

"The whole school is a very big job," said 68-year-old custodian Lee DeOliveira.

"It''s hard because we have to work around the summer school and other activities that go on in the school over the summer. We still have a lot of work to do," DeOliveira added.

The custodians admit that though some of the students tease and make fun of them during the school year, its worth it because their job is more demanding and much more rewarding than many people may think, the article noted.
