Condom Email Prank Hits Sidwell Friends, Private School Attended By Obama Daughters

WASHINGTON -- An email prank involving condom distribution was emailed on Tuesday to the parents of students attending an elite private Quaker school where the daughters of President Obama are enrolled.

As Washingtonian reports, the email stated that condoms would be made available to students because many have already "been engaging in inappropriate sexual behavior."

According to the magazine:

It also announced students would have "their choice of contraception" on prom night. It read: "As students board the chartered buses that will transport them from Sidwell Friends to the Four Seasons Hotel, they will each receive a voucher that may be redeemed for their choice of contraception at the conclusion of the Prom and After-Party event."

It's unclear if President Obama or first lady Michelle Obama received the prank email sent to Sidwell's upper school's parents. Malia Obama, the president's eldest daughter is in eighth grade and is not yet in the upper school, Washingtonian notes.

The prank email was followed up by another email from the school's principal debunking the first message as "fiction."

A number of presidential children have attended Sidwell Friends, which founded in 1883, including Tricia Nixon, Chelsea Clinton and Archibald Roosevelt. Vice President Biden's grandchildren also attend the school. Nancy Reagan, Bill Nye and Charlie Gibson are also distinguished alumni.

Sidwell has two campuses. The lower school is located in Bethesda, Md., while the upper school is located on Wisconsin Avenue near the headquarters of Fannie Mae in the District of Columbia.
