Chestatee High School is the cleanest school in Hall County. The hall ways are kept clear, the classrooms are clean, and the parking lots are free of litter.

But how is CHS kept so tidy? We have a hard-working and dedicated custodial service. Our custodians, who would prefer not to be named, have done a wonderful job making sure Chestatee is spotless.

The classroom is just one of the many things they make shine. They spend all morning and afternoon preparing a clear work space and learning environment for the students. Hallways are another task the custodians handle well. If things are spilled and carelessly left behind, it doesn't stay for long. Nothing is left for later; if a mess is made and left unattended, someone is always there to clean it up, though teachers and administrators highly encourage students to clean up after themselves.

The CHS parking lot is the last place I will mention where the custodial service shows exemplary work. Any litter, articles of clothing or other miscellaneous items are removed and put in the necessary places. Chestatee High is also big on recycling, so any plastic bottles cans, or papers are separated and recycled properly.

Each custodian at Chestatee has done as much as possible to keep our school clean. Not only do we respect them, they are greatly appreciated.
