The Denver Police Department would like to remind commuters that Wednesday August 8, 2012, will be the first day of school for Denver Public Schools in the far Northeast part of the city, primarily in the Montbello and Green Valley Ranch neighborhoods.
Therefore there will be an increase in pedestrian traffic in and around schools, specifically small children walking to and from school. We are asking that everyone please be cognizant of this increase and be aware of potential pedestrian routes from homes to schools, as well as the school zones that you may encounter on your daily commute. The Denver Police Department will be increasing enforcement in these areas to ensure safety and remind commuters to slow down in school zones.
The first day for the remaining Denver Public Schools will be August 27, 2012.
