If I have a question:

¿Quiénes van a ver a Luisa el domingo?

I can answer it someway like this, using object pronoun (I do not know if this is the right way to say that in English):

Los alumnos van a verla el domingo.

But if I want to put "la" in front of the verb phrase:

Los alumnos la van a ver a el domingo.

Should I say the "a" in bold here?

You're close, but no, even though your Los alumnos van a verla el domingo. is correct, in the second case you should say:

Los alumnos la van a ver el domingo

Oh, I made a mistake when typing ... just forgot the article el...then you mean the "a" should not be used here. – PJ.Hades Apr 9 '13 at 13:56
Oh, I see, but yes, the a has no place in your second sentence, because the a in the first one is part of verla so, van a verla is equivalent in this case to la van a ver – DarkAjax Apr 9 '13 at 14:12
