School Craze For Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie must be used to causing a frenzy wherever they go, but at Maddox's new school, Lycee Francais de New York, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the PTA moms are going wild. Mad started classes in early September and the school is still trying to get used to having Angie and Brad drop off and pick up their son.

The Lycee's director of operations, Dan Cooke, decided the best way to handle the hoards of parents, who hang around in hopes to get a glimpse or autograph from Brangelina, was to send a letter to the overeager moms and dads.

"I'm sure you are aware the school has received much media attention recently during the arrival and dismissal times because of the presence of celebrities Ms. Angelina Jolie and/or Mr. Brad Pitt," read the note, according to The New York Observer. "I want to make you aware that before the first day of school I met with their security team to discuss the best manner in which for them to drop off and pick up their son. Our foremost goal was to cause the least amount of disruption to the school and to ensure the security of all of our students and families. Regretfully, I have seen some parents taking pictures, asking for autographs, talking to the media and even shouting at Ms. Jolie and Mr. Pitt for recognition. Therefore, in the best interests of the school and safety of your child(ren) I must ask for everyone to please respect the family's privacy and discontinue these practices."

"The French are quite civilized," commented a source, who has a sibling at the school. "But sure, you have the moms who get there a little earlier to get a little glimpse." Though the source did say that Angie has apologized for the mayhem that her appearance at the school causes.

That letter from the Director of Operations made me laugh, because you know he's probably framed the part of Maddox's trip permission slip that Angie had to sign. function csOpenWidgetShare(){ window.open('http://video.ivillage.com/widgetxml/seedpopup/dailyblabberpopup.html','DailyBlabber','toolbar=0,location=0,status=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=0,resizable=1,width=534,height=500'); }
