President Obama’s scheduled visit to an Atlanta-area school on Thursday came at a time when the children were on winter break.

But no worries. The school has sent out a note to parents calling the kids back to class, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

College Heights Principal Suzanne Kennedy sent a note to parents about Mr. Obama’s planned visit to the College Heights Early Childhood Learning Center in Decatur, the report said. In the note, Ms. Kennedy said the school’s pre-K and Head Start programs would accommodate the president by reconvening class for the day.

“President Obama’s visit is an honor,” she wrote. “President Obama’s visit promises to be an amazing opportunity for our students to expand their worlds and for Decatur to celebrate its exemplary teaching and learning.”

The school is “offering a one-day experience” for the students, and providing a “normal school day: same bus, routes and times, same school beginning and end times, regular instructional day with the same staff,” Ms. Kennedy said, in the AJC report.
