Yale Travel Information

posted Sep 11, 2014, 5:58 PM by M.E. Debate

On Friday, September 19th, the Manchester Essex Debate and Speech Team will depart for its annual trip to New Haven, CT for the 2014 Yale Tournament.

We will leave from school by bus at 9:45am. Debate teacher Jennifer Coleman and director Yvonne Robbins will accompany students to New Haven. If an emergency develops during the weekend, please call your child’s cell phone or you may reach the chaperones. We will return to school late Sunday evening.

Yale is a very big tournament that requires students to take a great deal of personal responsibility. Rounds can be spread out across campus. When not in rounds, students must keep their cell phones on so they can be contacted. We will be staying at the Fairfield Inn in Wallingford, CT.

                 We will return to school Sunday night. For information about our progress and exact arrival time, please call your child’s cell phone. It is uncertain at this time our exact arrival time, since it is dependent on the success of students at the tournament over the weekend.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
