According to the New York Daily News, the United Nations International School (UNIS) in New York City was asked to extend invitations to its students to join the first lady on the tour.

Up to 10 students attending the school, which describes itself online as “the school of the United Nations” and runs from pre-K to 12th grade, will reportedly be able to attend the tour.

The school did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

According the Daily News, the school sent out a notice asking parents for permission for their children to attend the visit with the first lady earlier this week.

However, the move has reportedly been met with some objections from parents.

One UNIS parent told the newspaper that they sent a letter expressing concerns over the invitation to a U.N. undersecretary-general. 

The parent told the newspaper that they were “profoundly disappointed” in the school over its “decision to accept this invitation.”

The parent also said that other parents at the school had concerns about their how the appearance of their children “together with the First Lady confers, by extension, on this U.S. administration, the endorsement of our school and our community.” 

The Hill reached out to the White House for comment.
