Obama to address students on Tuesday from Philadelphia

President Barack Obama will be addressing students tomorrow at 1 p.m. from a school in Philadelphia in his second “back-to-school” speech. 

Spotsylvania County schools will be airing the speech countywide. However, parents can opt their children out of the speech by notifying the appropriate schools by tomorrow morning.

Last year, the president’s plan to deliver a back-to-school speech sparked reaction from some parents.

For more information, the Spotsylvania school division urges parents to contact their children’s teachers or principal.
