WASHINGTON — First things first: President-elect Barack Obama’s two daughters have checked into their new school in Washington.
Katie McCormick Lelyveld, a spokeswoman for Michelle Obama, said that Michelle Obama accompanied daughters Sasha, 7, and Malia, 10, to Sidwell Friends school this morning. Sasha is attending classes at the Bethesda, Md., elementary-school campus, where she is in second grade. Malia is in fifth grade at the middle school campus in the District of Columbia.
Sidwell is a private Quaker school. The campus in northwest Washington has grades 5-12 and the Bethesda campus is for kindergarten through fourth grade.
Security was relatively low key.
