In Vallivue, it’s time to name that school

First, voters in Canyon County’s Vallivue School District agreed to pay for a new high school. Now, they’ll get a say in picking a name, mascot and color scheme.

A survey is available on the Vallivue district’s website.

And the plan is to gradually narrow down the list of ideas. In November, the public can vote from a field of 10 semifinalists. When the field is narrowed down to five finalists, a second vote will be held in December.

The Vallivue School Board will give its final approval in January.

Voters approved a $50 million bond issue in May to finance a new high school — to supplement an overcrowded Vallivue High School. The new school is scheduled to open in 2016.

By the way, Vallivue high goes by the nickname Falcons; the school colors are brown and gold.
