Voters approved a $375 million bond for Poudre School District in 2016. Here’s a refresher on the 3 new schools (and another project) funded by it. Wochit
Poudre School District is seeking name recommendations for the new Loveland elementary school that will open in fall 2021.
The school — funded through Poudre School District’s 2016 bond money — will be the first PSD school in Loveland city limits. The district already owns the land, located off of Larimer County roads 5 and 30 north of The Ranch Events Complex. The estimated 75,000-square-foot building is set to hold 600 students, and a private groundbreaking is scheduled at the site later this month.
Per district policy, elementary schools must be named after a local person who has made a significant contribution to local public education, unless a compelling reason is established in favor of another reason for the name.
Some naming examples include:
- Someone associated with elementary, middle and high school education
- Someone with a central office assignment
- Board of Education members
To submit a name recommendation, fill out the district’s online recommendation formbelow. You can can also find it at psdschools.org. Submissions will be accepted through March 31.

Suggestions will be reviewed by a naming committee, which will ultimately make recommendations to the superintendent in April.
Superintendent Sandra Smyser will then make a recommendation to the Board of Education, and the board will be asked to take action to approve a name for the southeast elementary school in spring 2020.
