We need your help. Several times this year I have had to respond to angry neighbors in our community regarding how Denison parents are blocking driveway access and driving aggressively in the neighborhood. On Friday, I was visited by 2 police officers because a car was blocking a neighbor’s driveway. The police will begin patrolling the neighborhood during drop off and pick-up and ticket or towing any cars that are violating any traffic or parking laws. Please help us be good neighbors in our community.
If you have friends and family interested in attending Denison, please direct them to the Denison website for tour dates and information on our Open House.
