(Newser) – The school attended by the first daughters was evacuated today after someone phoned in a threat, the Washingtonian reports. Sidwell Friends School has already given the all-clear for students to return to campus, after an investigation found students were not at risk. No word on whether the threat was related to Malia or Sasha Obama, but current and former students say threats are not uncommon at Sidwell Friends.
