Denison Montessori School Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures

If you have a child in Primary and a child in Elementary, you will need to follow the PRIMARY pick-up procedure.

Important Items to Remember:

  1. We have over 400 students arriving and departing Denison daily, most of them by car. Please be patient. Expect that it will take 20 minutes to pick up and drop off your child. Thank you!
  2. All students are eligible to ride the bus. Please consider using the bus to reduce congestion at arrival and dismissal times.

Parking:

  1. Do not park on the west side of Yates Street nor the south side of Colorado Avenue. These areas are labeled “loading zone” and are for elementary carline only.
  2. Do not park in the bus and daycare van zone in front of the school on Yates (marked by Orange cones)
  3. Parking is available on the nearby residential streets. Please do not block any of the residential driveways. Be aware that there is street sweeping on the nearby streets between April and November.
  4. When parking, park in legal locations and do not block driveways.
  5. Do not park or drive in the staff parking lot.
  6. DPS Security and the Denver Police Department will issue tickets for illegally parked vehicles.

Inclement Weather

Winter Weather Drop-Off and Pick-up

There are slight differences when dropping your Denison student off during inclement weather.

Winter Weather Preparation Information

To help prepare parents/families for winter weather, the DPS Department of Transportation has a Winter Weather Information page with descriptions of preparation suggestions and procedures that are followed with inclement and severe weather. For convenience, also on that page is a winter related FAQ.

Weather Related School Closures

The decision to keep schools open or to close them during winter weather conditions is not a simple one, but it is made with one overriding factor in mind: the well-being of our students, their families and staff. It is a good idea to decide in advance how to best keep up with the changes, what childcare arrangements are needed, and how to adjust if schools closed due to inclement weather. The main DPS website is where school closures will first be reported.
