Operations and Maintenance

The KSD 140 Operations and Maintenance Department maintains the school district's facilities to ensure the comfort and safety of our students, staff, and visitors.

Our dedicated staff is responsible for managing buildings and grounds at two middles schools, five elementary schools, and an administrative building.  They are committed to providing an attractive, safe, and accessible learning environment.

Building Use

The District permits residents of the KSD 140 community to use school buildings for civic and recreational purposes.  Requests to use school facilities should be made by submitting an Application for Use of District Facilities and a completed Building Use Calendar to our Operations and Maintenance Department. Please click on the links at the right to download these forms.

Please note: State Law requires that school districts have readily available for emergency use “Automated External Defibrillators” in each facility.  There is signage in all gymnasiums as to the location of the defibrillators. 

AHERA Public Notification

Based upon the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) and the Illinois Department of Public Health requirements, it is the responsibility of Kirby School District 140 to inform each parent/guardian that our asbestos management plans are available for review.

Asbestos Management Plans, six-month inspections, three-year re-inspections and past abatement projects that have occurred during the summertime or on an emergency basis are available for review at the District office.


Any parent or guardian of a student may request to receive a written notice before any pesticide, other than an antimicrobial agent such as a disinfectant, or an insecticide or rodenticide bait, is used in a school building or on school grounds. Parents or guardians requesting written notice must submit such request in writing to the Supervisor of Maintenance at the Administration Building, 16931 South Grissom Drive, Tinley Park, IL 60477. Notice will be given at least two business days in advance.
