Are You Interested in Renaming Wye Elementary?
Construction of the replacement school for Wye Elementary—which will be located in the Heritage Hills area of Sherwood Park—is scheduled to begin in fall 2018. When a replacement school is built, the opportunity exists to consider renaming the school.
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is looking for input from Wye Elementary families and members of the local community on whether or not you support the renaming of the replacement school. Whether you want to keep the school name just as it is or would like to see the replacement school have a new name, we want to hear from you!
If the Board decides to proceed with renaming the school, we would like to consider name suggestions from our families and the community. As such, we are also collecting name suggestions from anyone who has one they would like to submit. Suggested names should reflect the criteria outlined in EIPS Administrative Procedure 541, Naming of Schools and Other Division-Owned Facilities and include a brief rationale. If the Board considers a new name for Wye Elementary, EIPS will seek additional feedback from the public on a shortlist of suggested names.
Please take a minute to complete the short survey to share your thoughts. This survey will remain open until Nov. 9, 2018.
