Pick Up and Drop Off at Armatage Montessori: 


56th street (Door 5, Main Entrance to the school)

No cars are permitted to enter the driveway between 7:05 – 7:40 a.m. / or until all buses have arrived. 

There is no on street parking on 56th street 

There is no drop off on 56th street as it creates a traffic jam.   In addition, it creates a situation in which children, buses and cars are in the same space.  We DO NOT want children running along side, in front of or between vehicles.

For the safety of everyone, families should use the park board parking lot to drop off students in the mornings.


Park Board Parking Lot (Door 15 entrance)

When exiting the park lot, please do not turn left. There have been a few fender benders and near misses as cars come around the bend when cars are turning left. 

We really appreciate your help in making drop-off and pick-up a safe experience for our children.
