A cover letter for a School Custodian position serves as an introduction of your competencies to the employer. It can be difficult to showcase your potential in a few lines even if you possess the required skills.

The key to help you do this is to master the art to connecting your skills and expertise with the job requirements. A cover letter written after a bit of research on the target organization is far more impressive in comparison to a cover letter written without knowing about the target organization.

To write a cover letter for custodian at a school, it is also advisable first to find out a few things about the school, hiring authority and job requirements. Look at the sample below to get a better idea.

Ms. Stella Payton,
Hiring Manager
Millbrae Elementary School District
78 Riverside Avenue
Millbrae, CA 56774


Dear Ms. Payton:

With 10+ years’ experience in custodial tasks accompanied by great ability to follow instructions and work independently, I would like to apply for the advertised position of school custodian at Millbrae Elementary School District.

Fully updated with general standards of school custodianship, sanitation and hygiene requirements, I have maintained a track record of high quality janitorial performance and my work has always been appreciated by supervisors. I offer the same level of custodial services to your school. My experience in multicultural settings has rendered me able to communicate effectively in Spanish in addition to English and this exposure to cultural diversity could also come in handy at your school since you also cater for students belonging to diverse cultures.

Gifted with traits like flexible personality, sound work ethics, a respectful nature and a deep understanding of cultural sensitivity, I believe I am exactly the candidate your school needs to fill this position.

Since I qualify for the Custodian position in terms of skills, competencies and qualifications, I look forward to discuss this in a meeting. I will pursue my application further by making a call to your office and possibly set up an interview meeting with you at any time and date of your convenience. Meanwhile, if you require any documents, have any questions or need any references, I’ll be available at (005) 666-8888.

Thanking you in anticipation of considering my application.
