Dear sir,

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.

Yours faithfully,

Writer’s Signature
