The Frederick County Public Schools Board of Education voted to close Sabillasville Elementary at the conclusion of the 2020-21 school year after considering a variety of alternatives presented by community members at their October 14th and November 23rd meetings.

In February 2020, the Board voted to keep Sabillasville open for the 2020-21 calendar year in order to vet possible options for keeping the school in operation. The Board agreed that a final decision about Sabillasville Elementary’s future would be made by December 2020.

Sabillasville Elementary had a total enrollment of 70 students as of September 30 and a building capacity for 160 students. The school opened in 1964.

After Thanksgiving, FCPS will share more details with the Sabillasville Elementary community about future options.
