America's bloodiest day
What you need to know

Advertiser Staff


• All public schools are open today, including those on military bases.

• Schools chief Paul LeMahieu is encouraging all public schools to set aside some time today for appropriate activities in memory of the victims of the terrorist attacks. These could include periods of silence, choral or band recitals, school assemblies or making and wearing special ribbons.

• Co-curricular activities at public schools have been canceled through Sunday. Football, cross-country and volleyball activities, as well as other student events and activities are included.


• Because of delays near military bases as security identification checks continue, the ZipLane will remain open until 9:15 a.m. until further notice. Vehicles with at least two occupants will be able to use the ZipLane from 7 to 9:15 a.m. weekdays. From 5:30 to 7 a.m., vehicles entering the lane must have three or more occupants.


• State airports open. Passengers are asked to call ahead to confirm their flight status, and to check in three hours before departure time. Aloha said interisland passengers should check in 90 minutes before departure.

• For curbside dropoff, only passengers will be allowed to remove luggage from vehicles — drivers must remain in the car. If you are arriving by yourself you will not be allowed to drop off luggage curbside. You must park and take your luggage to check in. All cars entering the parking garage will be searched and a photo ID will be required.

• On the Web, information on which airports are open can be found at www.atcscc.faa.gov. Click on advisories. For information on flights go to www.state.hi.us/dot
