WASHINGTON (AP) - A day after President Barack Obama publicly teased local school officials for canceling class because of wintry weather, he and his wife visited their younger daughter's school on Thursday.
Obama and his wife, Michelle, left the White House around 8:15 a.m. for the ride to the Bethesda, Md., campus of the Sidwell Friends School, a private school where their 7-year-old daughter, Sasha, is in the second grade.
The Obamas spent a little more than an hour at the school attending a class presentation before they returned to the White House.
Obama had ridiculed local officials for closing school Wednesday, saying "we're going to have to apply some flinty Chicago toughness to this town."
Older daughter Malia, 10, is a fifth-grader at Sidwell's middle school in the District of Columbia.
