Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have removed their three kids from their private Washington, D.C. school after the school’s administrator expressed concern regarding the couple’s disregard for COVID-19 safety precautions.
Ivanka and Jared “repeatedly violated a number of the guidelines” that were outlined in the school’s parent handbook, a source shared with CNN.
“There was no secret about their behaviors, because everyone could see them,” an unnamed parent at the school said, referring to the couple’s jobs, as well as the number of raising positive COVID cases at the White House.
After a private meeting with administrators, Ivanka and Jared decided to remove their three kids – Arabella, 9, Joseph, 7, and Theodore, 4 – from the school after parents had complained that the family was not following the school’s protocols including wearing face masks, social-distancing and self-quarantining if exposed to someone with the virus.
White House spokeswoman Carolina Hurley addressed the situation saying, “Unnamed sources attacking a family’s decision about what is best for their kids in the middle of a pandemic is shameful…As is true for all families, schooling choices and education are deeply personal decisions and they owe no one, especially idle gossips seeking press attention, an explanation.”
News of Ivanka and Jared removing their kids from the school comes after it was revealed that over 130 Secret Service officers have coronavirus or are in quarantine due to President Trump‘s campaign travels.
