Supplies

Pallets loaded with suppliesOperational and instructional supplies are purchased in bulk, received, and stocked to the warehouse for cost savings purposes. New furniture is also ordered and stocked to the warehouse. Schools and locations can order needed items through the ‘Lawson’ System. Once orders have been placed, the warehouse staff will pick the items and deliver to the locations. On most occasions, orders are delivered on non-courier days (Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday). During peak demand, orders will also ship on regular courier days (Tuesday and Friday) as well.

To submit a request to have surplus items picked up, a work order must be submitted via the ‘School Dude’ link or an e-mail must be sent to the Warehouse Foreman. The Warehouse will keep all surplus items in good condition so that these can be made available for other schools and locations in the future.
