POSTINGSOnline! Make sure and your students are linked in Tabroom. 

Locations: A wing is to the left of the admin offices.  B wing is straight out from the cafeteria.  C wing is the hallway connecting A and B on both sides forming a U.  D wing is the first hallway off of the cafeteria. Numbering is unusual for C wing C101-C106 is down the long hallway by the admin offices and then continues at the other end of the building.  We pride ourselves in having the most complex and confusing building in the debate world. 


Tab Room: Outside of the Media Center in Upper C.  Come here and calmly bring your concerns to the table.  Judges, if you are not assigned a debate you should be outside the tab room to take a ballot in case someone doesn't show up.
