Copperhaven, Spruce Grove's newest public school, is set to open this September! Serving as a prototype for new schools in the County of Parkland, Copperhaven will hold 900 students and will feature energy forward construction, including 4 banks of solar panels.
Located on the West side of Spruce Grove, in the new Copperhaven subdivision, this school also offers a location directly adjacent to Spruce Grove's new School Bus Transfer Site. Until now, all students from Spruce Grove were required to board a bus close to their home, travel to the East side of Spruce Grove to the Greystone Transfer Site, board a second bus and travel back to their designated school. For some students (such as my daughter), this meant traveling across town in the opposite direction of her school, changing busses and passing her subdivision again before reaching her school.
Now, Spruce Grove will be divided in half, with Westside students utilizing the West Bus Transfer Station, and Eastside students traveling to the East Bus Transfer Station, reducing the time students spend on buses. Smart move Spruce Grove!!!
