Deleting Home Directories along with User in AD

I am trying to make a change to this script so that i can go one level up in the home directory and delete from there. The homedirectory property in AD is formatted like this \\server01\staff\%username%\documents. I am looking to delete the path of \\server01\staff\"username". The script currently deletes the documents and not the folder labeled as the username. Here is the script.

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$Users = Import-Csv C:\Update\deleteusers.csv

Foreach ($User in $Users) {
Get-ADUser -identity $User.Username -properties Name, homedirectory | % {
    Write-Host ("Removing homdir for:" + $_.Name + ",path:" + $_.homedirectory)
    rm -Force -Recurse $_.homedirectory

}
Remove-ADuser $User.Username
}

The following should work for you.  It uses Split-Path to get the parent directory.
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$Users = Import-Csv C:\Update\deleteusers.csv

Foreach ($User in $Users) {
Get-ADUser -identity $User.Username -properties Name, homedirectory | % {
    $home = Split-Path $_.homedirectory -Parent
    Write-Host ("Removing homdir for:" + $_.Name + ",path:" + $home)
    rm -Force -Recurse $home

}
Remove-ADuser $User.Username
}

That did it. I did have one hiccup regarding deleting a leaf object but i used the remove-adobject cmdlet instead....with the -recursive parameter and all went well. Thanks for your response footech. Here was my outcome
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$Users = Import-Csv C:\Update\deleteusers.csv

Foreach ($User in $Users) {
Get-ADUser -identity $User.Username -properties Name, distinguishedname, homedirectory | % {
    $homepath = Split-Path $_.homedirectory -Parent 
    Write-Host ("Removing homdir for:" + $_.Name + ",path:" + $homepath)
    rm -Force -Recurse $homepath
    Remove-Adobject $_.distinguishedname -recursive -Confirm:$false
}
}
