Subject: Leave letter to school teacher

Respected ma’am,

I am Stephen Charles and I am writing this letter to inform you that my son, Joe Charles, studying in your school in the 10th standard, has been diagnosed with chicken pox. He is advised to take proper bed rest till the time he is cured completely. Through this letter, I would like to request from you to kindly grant him leaves till the time he is cured.

As chicken pox is a communicable disease, I fear from sending him to school. I also request you to kindly allow a student of your class to take a note of all the class activities, homework and other activities, so that he or she can inform Joe regarding the same. I request for the leaves, effective from tomorrow, till the time of his complete recovery.

I have enclosed the documents of Joe’s medical certificates and doctor’s prescriptions for your kind referral with this letter. If you need any clarifications or details, please feel free to contact me on 4959394.

Thanking you in anticipation.


Stephen Charles

Father of Joe Charles
