4th and 5th Graders
All the students were given a sheet at the end of the day listing the rules for our White House visit. Hopefully they will make it home. I will also have copies available Monday night at Parents Night. For good measure several copies will come home next week.
#1 The fourth grade will be going IN the White House. The fifth grade will be seeing the Visitors Center and BOTH grades will go to the History Museum for a few hours.
#2 EVERYONE MUST be at the school no later than 6:45 am. Don’t be late. The van will not wait. Students will be given orange t-shirts to wear.
#3 Students who were born OUTSIDE the US OR ARE FOREIGN CITIZENS MUST HAVE A PASSPORT
Just in case, Clara’s mom, Naomi Feldman, and Sharon Turpie, the class’s science teacher, will be on hand at the White House to bring any children who are not allowed in to join us at the Visitors Center. I will try to arrange another trip next Spring during a vacation day for anyone who could not get in. I do not anticipate problems. If you have questions, call me at 609-923-2808
White House Public Tours: East Wing and the Residence
Public tours of the White House are free of charge and can be scheduled through your congressional representative. Visitors will enter the White House complex from the south side of East Executive Avenue. After passing through the security screening area, guests will enter the East Wing of the White House and proceed down the East Colonnade following the route to the Residence depicted on the White House tour map below.
