Photo ID for Air Travel

   I reminded the little darlings tonight to bring photo ID with them to the airport.   In past years, students have shown up without IDs, and others lose them on the trip.   My email was short and succinct.  Do not bring your passport if you have a STATE OF XX ID.  A school ID or ID from your home country isn’t correct. You must bring photo ID to the airport.  It confused them.  I sent a follow-up.   You have to have a photo ID.  Bring either a State of XX ID (preferred, but you all may not have one.) OR Passport.  Those are your only options.  You MUST bring a photo ID.    Some of them are still confused.   ‘Can I use my gym ID?’  ‘Can I use my school ID?’  ‘If I don’t have an XX state ID card, should I bring my passport?’   I absolutely know some FES will arrive at the airport with a high school ID because his counselor ‘thought it was good enough.’
