  • Willie Price Family Handbook

    This handbook was developed to provide information to parents who entrust their child or children to the staff at Willie Price Lab School. Because the children being served are greater in number than would be found in the normal home, certain rules and regulations must be applied. This handbook provides these rules and regulations for families.
