President Obama's Daughter's School Evacuated


Sidwell Friends, the school where President Obama’s daughters Sasha and Malia attend, evacuated students and staff from its Wisconsin Avenue campus this morning following a phoned in threat. The details of the threat and whether it had any connection to the First Family daughters was not immediately available Thursday morning.

The following message was distributed through the school's emergency notification system around 11:30 a.m. today: “This is an emergency message from Sidwell Friends School. Due to a suspicious phone call, the buildings on the Wisconsin Avenue campus have been evacuated. We will notify you when further information is available.”

More updates as further information become available

1. I'm gonna jump to some conclusions, here, but

it sounds like the right-wing is wound up tighter than a drum because they know this is their last "rich white man in the White House" shot; therefore, they must lash out against anything and everything "Obama."

2. one thing..

 

Pretty much anyone elected president is rich these days and those members of the house and senate who come in not wealthy, seem to leave wealthy.

6. Update:

Shortly after noon, Sidwell Friends sent this message to parents: "As reported earlier, the School received a suspicious phone call and evacuated the buildings on the Wisconsin Avenue campus. After an investigation by law enforcement officials, it was determined that students were not at risk. They have returned to class."


One SFS parent told The Washingtonian that during a security sweep conducted by the Secret Service the students were evacuated to the soccer field. There's no information yet on how or to where the Obama girls were evacuated. We did receive a phone call from Ellis Turner, the associate head of Sidwell Friends, who confirmed that students had returned to their classes. He said the suspicious phone call came into the school's administrative offices. He would not say who took the call or whether the caller was male or female.
