Schools and Administrators can enter non-urgent work orders in our SchoolDude work order system. You can call Maintenance if a work order needs to be explained for more clarity, but a call is not a substitute for a work order. All urgent requests need to be called into Maintenance immediately so that they can be addressed. Urgent issues include power outages, extreme building temperature issues, no hot water in cafeteria, security system issues, fire alarms or extreme plumbing issues, etc.
