School Calendar

View our School Calendar for upcoming events and dates. See the CBE website for system calendars.

School Parking Lot

Please note that the parking lot is not available for visitor/volunteer/parent parking. For safety reasons, DO NOT use the parking lot to drop-off or pick-up children. We ask that you refrain from parking in the parking lot. The parking lot is only accessible to CBE employees as staff members pay for the privilege of accessing assigned parking, and they arrive at various times throughout the day. 

Parent Parking & Student Drop-Off

The front of the school (Copperstone Road) is a bus zone. There is no parking or student drop off/pick up in this area. Should you wish to park and walk your child to their door, please find a parking spot away from the front of the school & away from the school parking lot. We have a Hug and Go area on Copperstone Blvd for parents to drop off their students.

Lunch Supervision

Copperfield School offers a four-day (Monday – Thursday) Lunch Supervision program for students in Grades 1-5. Students bring their own lunches and are supervised both while they eat lunch and while they play outside. No microwave or hot water services are available. Online registration and fee payment for this program is required. Lunch Supervision begins on the first day of school. 

Registrations are submitted online using MyCBE Account.
