Buildings & Grounds Director Michael Scheidt

Buildings & Grounds Director Mr. Michael Scheidt is a lifelong resident of Elmwood Park and graduate of District 401 schools. He also served a total of 10 years on the EP401 Board of Education.


Meet Michael Scheidt, a 1992 EPHS graduate and District 401's new Director for Buildings & Grounds. He succeeds Joseph Sierra, who served in that position from July 2018 to November 2022. 

Mr. Scheidt is certainly no stranger to the District. Not only did the Elmwood Park native receive his education in District schools, graduating from Elmwood Elementary before he became an EPHS Tiger, but he served on the EP401 Board of Education during several stints, for a total of 10 years.

His wife, Mary, is also a 1992 EPHS alum. Their four children have either graduated from the District or are current EP401 students. Mr. Scheidt began his new job in December 2022 after working for the Village of Elmwood Park for 25 years.
