Lab Parents — Save the Date

On October 16, 17, and 18, each finalist candidate will visit Lab (one per day) to learn more about the school and to afford an opportunity for the Lab community to meet that individual and provide input. Specific meeting times will be arranged for parents and for faculty and staff each day and will be posted here when determined.
