As kids we always had that excuse of why we didn't want to got to school and on occasion our parents would write an excuse note for us. It seems that 5th grader Tyler has received the greatest excuse note ever from President Obama. I think this tops the old excuse "my dog ate my homework".

The quick story is that Tyler Sullivan missed school because his dad Ryan was introducing the President in Minnesota and Tyler tagged along. The President was kind enough to make sure that the school knew that Tyler skipped class for a good reason.
