Leave of Absence Letter To Principal For Two Days

Writing a leave of absence-letter is important when a student cannot attend school for a few days. This letter should, in most cases, be addressed to the principal. If the student is under the age of 18, it is recommended that the student’s parents write the letter. Any spelling mistakes, unclear reasons as to why the student will be absent or writing the letter in an informal way can make the wrong impression.

It is therefore a good idea to make use of a sample letter. These three samples are meant to be written by a parent. If you are a student writing the letter yourself, you will need to make some adjustments, but the samples can still be helpful in order to get you started on your letter.
