Maintenance, Custodial & Grounds

The Maintenance Department was comprised of 15 specialists and 23 building engineers who maintained equipment and ensured that all district facilities were running smoothly. During the year, employees completed 10,000 work orders and monthly preventative maintenance orders.  Licensed specialists included a locksmith, two plumbers, two electricians, five HVAC technicians, two electronics technicians, two carpenters, and a painter; and each school site had at least one licensed building engineer.  The High School campus, including the UMAC, had five building engineers because of its size and large volume of day, night, and weekend activities.  The district received a $67,235.00 rebate check from PSO for participating in a summer energy savings program and was honored with an award for saving the most energy.

The Custodial Department had 110 full- and part-time employees including 20 lead custodian supervisors.  Custodial staff members, collectively, cleaned and maintained 3,323,544 sq. ft. of building space. 

The Grounds Department’s 13 employees maintained more than 425 acres of district property at 23 different sites.  In addition to regular grounds maintenance, the grounds crew handled playground maintenance, small asphalt and concrete repairs, signage, snow removal, preparation and clean up for events, and worked with the warehouse during large moves.

Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week, which is celebrated annually October 23-31, is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention awareness program. Union Public Schools will host a myriad of activities during this time to raise awareness as well.

Red Ribbon Week was started after the death of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who in 1985 was brutally tortured and murdered by drug traffickers he was investigating in Mexico.  As a tribute to SA Camarena, high school friend, Henry Lozano and Congressman Duncan Hunter, created “Camarena Clubs” and the wearing of a red ribbon to show their oppositions to drugs.

Union school sites will host activities ranging from special assemblies, special dress-up days to classroom activities that address the concerns related to illicit drugs.
