President, First Lady visit daughter’s school

Though still on far Eastern time, the president, and the first lady, made the

trek out through morning rush hour traffic to Sidwell Friends Lower School in

Bethesda, where Sasha goes, for a non-official visit.

A WH press aide said first couple were attending a school function, but would

not elaborate. Pool was kept outside, and walked to nearby shops for coffee.

Visit lasted about 45 minutes.

9:04 a.m. Left school at 9:49 a.m. Arrived White House at 10:18 a.m.
