President Obama writes excuse note for Minnesota student

June 4, 2012 12:00:00 AM PDT
A Minnesota fifth grader will give a note to his teacher on Monday for missing school on Friday, but it's no ordinary note.

Tyler Sullivan skipped school to watch President Barack Obama speak at the Honeywell factory where his dad worked in Golden Valley.

The 11-year-old met the president, who said, "You must be out of school."

Mr. Obama then reached for a pen and the presidential letterhead and wrote "Please excuse Tyler. He was with me!"
