  1. Overview: This policy is to assure the effective coordination of building security between those buildings opened by Custodial Services and those opened by Public Safety in accordance to how and when buildings are regularly utilized.
  2. Policy: The following list of buildings are those to be opened by the Custodial Services Department, Monday through Friday, throughout the year. The exception to the procedure will be during the break between Christmas and New Year holidays. When school is not in session, Custodial Services will continue to be responsible for opening designated buildings. In the event that all custodial employees in a building are temporarily reassigned during semester breaks, it will be the responsibility of the Custodial Services Department to notify Public Safety and ask that they temporarily unlock doors.
