Tomorrow, Thursday April 6, is departure day for NHSIM's 2017 Big Tour to OrlandoFest and The Bahamas! Here are just a few reminders and notes for students and parents: * Please arrive at the District Auditorium Green Room (the large staging room behind the main stage in the District Building) by 8:00 am, with everything you are taking on the trip. Police dogs will 'sniff' the luggage for contraband be
fore we load the buses. * Luggage can include at most one luggage item to be checked, one smaller carry-on item for overhead bins, and one small person bag. Checking vs. packing/carrying-on instruments will be coordinated by Mr. Riendeau. * Wendy Couch has copies of all birth certificates, so there is no need to bring a copy with you. However, please bring your student ID/driver's license, or other secondary ID with you. * Meals will be provided on Tour, but spending money is recommended for the purchase of souvenirs, snacks, etc. Cash or Visa/MC gift cards are recommended. The cruise ship does not accept American Express. * It is recommended that students bring a bagged snack or lunch and drink tomorrow that can be eaten on the bus and at the airport before passing through security. Remember that drinks can not be carried through security, so bring either a disposable bottle or something that can be emptied and stored. * Departure from Oakland is on Southwest Airlines Flight #4339 at 1:55 pm. Wendy Couch will arrange pre-check-in this evening, so hopefully we'll have easy, priority boarding tomorrow. There is no assigned seating on Southwest, so kids hoping to sit together should try to board together. (Return flights are Southwest #1613 and #4995. See the website for more info.)
