LETTER OF PERMISSION TO BE ABSENT FROM SCHOOL FOR TWO WEEKS
I use this medium to ask for permission to be absent from school for two weeks. It will be from 27th November till 11th December, 2015.
This is because i will be travelling home with my father to pay an urgent visit to my sick grandfather. He has requested to see me.
Meanwhile, i have informed my class-teacher about this and i will be back in school to continue my academic work.
I really appreciate your fatherly care and understanding. Thanks for always being there.
