LIVINGSTON, NJ — It''s a race to the finish for custodians and work crews as they prepare schools for the arrival of teachers and students, according to the Livingston Patch.

Custodians in the Livingston Township School District have been working in excess of 20 hours per day in order to prepare the district’s nine schools for the beginning of the new school year, the article stated.

According to the article, to complete the summer to-do list the district employed over 80 workers, a number that will decrease to 10-20 per school once the school year is in full swing.

During the district welcome back meeting hosted by Superintendent Brad Draeger, a video presentation featured pictures of the custodians who had made all improvements and cleanups possible, the article noted.

"It was really nice to see the custodians recognized for all of their hard work," said Deb Ostrowski, the new principal at Mount Pleasant Middle School. "They are our unsung heroes."
