The private school that both Obama daughters attend, was evacuated Thursday due to a suspicious package, police officials say.
A spokesman for the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department said that the scene is now clear and that there is no evidence that the threat was directed at the First Family.
According to the Washingtonian, this message was distributed to the school’s emergency alert system: “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.”
“We are aware of the threat and are monitoring the situation, which is being handled by MPD,” Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told POLITICO.
