Yes, Abbie Sawyer Elementary School is moving! For the 2015-16 school year, we will be setting up “camp” at the former Edwards school building (aka Camp Sawyer), at 3622 Woodland St.
It is critical that families coordinate their transportation plans immediately. For those who walk to Sawyer Elementary this year, the distance from home to Camp Sawyer on Woodland Street may be too far—especially in the winter months.
For the year Sawyer students attend Camp Sawyer, the District will provide bus transportation free of charge for all Sawyer students who request it. You MUST apply for transportation with your student’s 2015-16 registration in order to receive busing, even if you have applied for busing in the past.
Please note that in the fall, Durham may be unable to process applications received later than one week before the start of school, and late applicants’ students will NOT be allowed to ride the bus until after Labor Day.
Please call the Sawyer Office (239-3790) or District Transportation Coordinator Dee Hehr (268-6640) with questions or concerns.
