The Fremont Public Schools Maintenance Department is dedicated to providing a safe, healthy and clean environment for our students and staff. Our department is comprised of 4 maintenance/grounds Technician Specialists and 2 part time seasonal employees.
Fremont Public School district consists of 6 instructional buildings, 15 non-instructional buildings totaling over 500,000 square feet, 5 playgrounds and 16 athletic fields. Our facilities set on approximately 266 acres.
Eight years ago, Fremont Public Schools and Newaygo County RESA entered into a shared services agreement to share one Director of Operations to serve both Fremont Public Schools and Newaygo County RESA. This arrangement allows for not only sharing the Director, but also man-power such as grounds-keeping, skilled maintenance and equipment. With the state requiring the consolidation of non-instructional services, Fremont Public Schools and Newaygo County RESA were ahead of the requirements by entering into this arrangement.
The interior of our buildings are maintained by our cleaning services contractor, Grand Rapids Building Services.
This past summer our maintenance department was able to focus on improving the curb appeal of our grounds. Much work was done at Pathfinder with the removal of several over grown trees and spruced up flower beds. Several of these trees were grown to a point that they were creating unsafe areas for our students and staff. Daisy Brook received some hard surface repair to the back of the building with the removal of some shrubbery and replaced with new concrete to improve drainage and appearance. The High School had some flower bed improvements, drive repair. There were several areas of improvements made inside or our Middle School with 22 rooms receiving fresh paint. The bus garage also received a new look in the mechanics area with fresh paint. All buildings that have wood gym floors were resurfaced.
Thank you to the Packer Backers for purchasing new scoreboards for the Baseball, Softball and Soccer fields. The maintenance department assisted in the installation of these new scoreboards as well as painting all the uprights that the new scoreboards are mounted to.
