Signs urge removing food trash

To minimize the extra work the maintenance team was doing, cleaning empty plates, half-full drinks and other litter off tables in the quad, there will be a new sign system to discourage the mess.

“On every table out there, there will be a little table tent, you know what it is going to say? Most people clean up after themselves,” Head of Upper School Audrius Barzdukas said.

“We are not going to tell you what you have to do,” Barzdukas said. “We are going to point out, most people clean up after themselves. Because you know what most people do? Pick up the french fry thing and stick it in the garbage. A big part is leading by example.”

Upper School Plant Manager Felipe Anguiano said that the maintenance department is optimistic about the signs.

“We will give them a try and see if it helps,” Anguiano said.
