Departing Flight information:

American Airlines Flight #922
Departs: Miami (MIA) at 10:35 pm

Your student leader:

Your student leader is Joe LaRocca

Student leaders will:

  • Collect and carry all student passports, from just after the security checkpoint in the US until just before immigration in your destination country.
    • Why? Passports are far less likely to be lost when they’re all in one place!
  • Take a great photo of students’ smiling faces once you’ve gathered at the gate.
    • Why? We’ll post this photo to the Yak Board to let parents know that students are on their way!
  • Communicate any potential difficulties with the Boulder Admin Office.
    • Why? We ask students to leave their cell phones behind, but it’s helpful for one student to carry a phone on travel days. Student Leaders carry cell phones while traveling, but will turn their phone over to their instructors upon arrival.

We could have easily chosen any one of you, so please help your student leader with their tasks as your travel progresses.
