Holidays and other closings

The Lab School yearly calendar shows the planned closings due to holidays (grayed 0ut dates).

August closing. We close for one week during August each year. This provides much-needed time for custodial staff to deep clean the classrooms, as well as for maintenance staff to address issues. It also gives our teaching staff a time to prepare for the upcoming school year as they participate in trainings such as CPR, first aid, fire safety, universal precautions, medication administration, etc.

Weather-related closings

The Lab School will close if ISU classes are cancelled or offices are closed. In the rare circumstance that there are not enough staff on site to meet the required staff per child ratios, the Lab School is not permitted to operate. If this happens we will try to communicate this message to as many parents as possible through phone calls or e-mails.



Lab School parking changes

Visitors will no longer be given access through Osborn Gate to park in Lot 43. Visitors will now need to park in the Memorial Union or other visitor parking spaces on campus. If parking in the Memorial Union, the Lab School can validate their parking by making arrangements at the time an appointment is scheduled.

Parents can visit their kids at the Lab School

Just a reminder that parents can visit their child at the Lab School — to have lunch with your child, assist with a field trip, or simply help with a classroom activity. You may also observe your child from the observation booths attached to each classroom.
