The Loudoun County School Board is seeking name suggestions for two Dulles elementary schools that will open in the fall of 2021, according to Loudoun County Public Schools.
A Dulles North area school, currently referred to as ES-23, will be located in the Arcola Center development off Evergreen Mills Road. The second elementary school, ES-29, will be in the Dulles South area, co-located on the Lightridge High School site in Aldie.
Board-appointed naming committees for ES-23 are scheduled to meet Oct. 16 and Nov. 6 at the LCPS Administration Building, which is located at 21000 Education Court in Ashburn. ES-29 naming committee meetings will be held Oct. 30 and Nov. 14 at Goshen Post Elementary School, located at 24945 Lobo Drive in Aldie.
The committees will consider geographic and historic names, as well as names of people who contributed significantly to the quality of life in Loudoun, LCPS, the Commonwealth of Virginia or the United States. Barring extraordinary circumstances, the committees will not consider naming a school facility after any individual who is currently living or has been deceased less than five years.
Name suggestions should be mailed to LCPS Division of Planning Services — 21000 Education Court, Ashburn, VA 20148 — or emailed to email@example.com no later than Oct. 11. Those suggesting a school name are asked to provide background information to aid in the selection process.
