Attendance policy for PWTs and FYMs

We expect you to attend regularly scheduled afternoon training sessions. Makeup sessions are for mentors and tutors who have legitimate conflicts (sports practice, orchestra, job interview, or a lecture required for a class).  In advance of the regular session, please e-mail for permission to attend a makeup session.  Make-ups will be given only with permission and in advance for a valid reason. E-mail Maggie Morris for permission (mkmorris@middlebury.edu). Maggie will consult with Mary Ellen Bertolini, and then let you know if you have permission to attend a makeup session with Maggie
