COVID-19 Protocol

We take the health and safety of our school community very seriously at Durango Montessori School. We support science-backed safety recommendations and public health measures. 

For the 2021-22 school year, DMS is requiring masks for all students, staff, volunteers, and family members while indoors. This decision is based on recommendations from the CDC, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, San Juan Basin Public Health, and local medical professionals. 

DMS will continue to take into consideration all professional medical guidance and local public health recommendations. We also make diligent efforts and pay stringent attention to classroom cleanliness. This, along with our small class sizes and ample space in the Smiley Building, have allowed us to stay open for most of the pandemic period thus far.

We appreciate each family’s commitment to the health and safety of all members of our school, and value your patience as we navigate this challenging time as an intentional community.
