Yup, another elementary school. What to do...? - Lucky 6.9 17:03, 9 Jul 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete: I vote delete on elementary schools. I also vote for renaming schools with common names, so this would be "Freetown Elementary School, Massachussets," ideally, if it were kept. I've got to think that the city of Freetown in Liberia has an elementary school. Geogre 17:57, 9 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Rearrange the following into a well known word ... DEEELT. Noisy 18:02, 9 Jul 2004 (UTC)
    • Uh...TLEEED?  :^) - Lucky 6.9 21:55, 9 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Perfectly interesting topic. Ambivalenthysteria 23:43, 9 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Why shouldn't schools be included? It isn't a stub either. Eskrima 03:41, 10 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. RickK 04:19, Jul 10, 2004 (UTC)
  • Deletèd, as Strong Bad would say. Same goes for other schools where nothing has ever happened. — Chameleon My page/My talk 08:04, 10 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Ooh, pick me, pick me! TEEDLE! - Lucky 6.9 08:27, 10 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • ELEETD. Or something like that. -- pne 15:16, 10 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Wrong side of the line. Delete. SWAdair | Talk 23:20, 10 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • TED LEE says "Once you open the door, it stays open." Thanks to all those people who thought every non-notable college and high school deserved an article, we now provide carte blanche for elementary schools. Mark my words - next, we will see daycares and Scout groups vying for space. Denni 02:47, 2004 Jul 11 (UTC)
  • Delete. Wrong side of the line. Wile E. Heresiarch 03:09, 11 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Please let's not go down this road. Joyous 17:45, Jul 11, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Acegikmo1 18:49, 11 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Well-written, factual article about real entity. Jgm
  • Delete. -Sean Curtin 06:45, 13 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Unless you plan to delete every other listing on List_of_schools_in_the_United_States. Otherwise, it seems like this one has been singled out for no apparent reason. User:Sahasrahla
    • There is a reason: it's an elementary school. The "line" has been high schools stay, but elementary schools go, and so do middle schools. Geogre 20:23, 13 Jul 2004 (UTC)
      • Going by the decision in October 2003, and again in November 2003, to not delete the List_of_schools_in_the_United_States itself, it doesn't look to me as if there is such a line, Geogre. That list has stayed, and it's choc-a-bloc with redlinks (and a few blue) to elementary schools, that people are asked to help Wikipedia by writing articles for. :-( The subject of school articles goes round and round on VdF: see archive at [1]! (That's not the best way to link, but I don't understand internal linking yet, sorry, I'm new here.) RickK argues the case for deletion there; this time around he seems to be to tired of the subject to say more than "Delete," and I don't blame him. Oh, and I vote Delétè.--Bishonen 21:11, 13 Jul 2004 (UTC)
        • Ah, well that's exactly it -- it's dysfunctional to argue about every one of these instances (high schools and middle schools still show up on vfd, by the way) if there is a policy discussion/decision elsewhere. I understand that many might not agree with the policy the way to make that known is to re-open the policy discussion rather than taking the passive-agressive approach of throwing articles which conform to policy (or at least do not violate on established ground) to vfd. Jgm 21:45, 13 Jul 2004 (UTC)
        • Very nicely distinguished, Jgm, I totally agree. I change my vote to Delete'Em All. Thanks to Sahasrahla for pointing to the list page. --Bishonen 22:01, 13 Jul 2004 (UTC)
          • There are at least six "Freetown Elementary School"s, so this may be a good disambig page. But I dunno. WhisperToMe 22:16, 13 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Przepla 15:14, 14 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. And I would also support a modification/clarification of WP policy to allow the keeping of all elementary school entries. - Plutor 18:44, 14 Jul 2004 (UTC)
    • All elementary school entries? Cool. I have fond memories of mine, Sundbybergs Småskola, Stockholm. --Bishonen 19:04, 14 Jul 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep, but rename to something including the state name and, for the time being, redirect from where it is now Salasks 15:13, 15 Jul 2004 (UTC)
