Alaska Air Carry On Baggage Policy:

The following baggage rules apply only when traveling on Alaska Airlines. If your itinerary includes travel on another airline, please check that airline’s Web site for their specific baggage rules.

You’re allowed one carry-on bag, which including wheels and handles can measure up to 10″ H x 17″ W x 24″ L (25 x 43 x 61 cm), plus one personal item, such as a purse, briefcase or laptop computer. At least one of the items should be stowed under the seat in front of you.

Every effort will be made to accommodate your carry-on in the passenger cabin. Acceptance of carry-on baggage is subject to space availability on the aircraft at the time you board. In the event adequate space is not available, your carry-on bag will be checked for no charge to baggage claim at your final destination.

Items exceeding the free carry-on allowance will be charged $25 per piece and tagged for delivery to baggage claim at your destination.

Weather :

Wednesday when we arrive it will be rainy and 50 degrees.

Thursday High of 57/Low of 41 and rain

Friday – High of 61/Low of 36 and rain

Saturday – High of 62/Low of 40 and sunny

Sunday – High of 62/Low of 37 and partly sunny

In their free time student may dress casually yet school appropriate

Both Wednesday and Thursday have rain in the forecast. The tour of Nike will include walking between buildings, so please be sure to bring a weather appropriate jacket.

Spending Money:

Breakfast is provided by the hotels every morning.  On Thursday we will have box lunches at Nike. Students will still need spending money for lunch/dinner/shopping/free time. There is a Target and an AM/PM within walking distance of the hotel in Yakima if the students want to have snacks in their rooms.

We will be shopping at the Nike Company store.  Students have expressed concern about getting their “loot” home. We will look into shipping options either through Nike at the time of purchase or on Friday and shipping would be an additional cost to be covered by the student.  Another suggestion is that students can group together and bring an extra bag to check on the way home for $25 per bag.
