Excuse Letters for Child’s Absence from School

Letter -1

My name is Anderson, and I am a student in class 7th at your school. I am writing this letter to inform you about my absence from school due to a fever. I will be unable to attend my classes from [date] to [date] because I have been diagnosed with [X]. I am spending days and nights burning with fever. Since this is a contagious disease, I thought it would be a better choice to take my days off rather passing the disease to other classmates.

I am in a bad state of health and my doctor has prescribed me complete bed rest for two weeks. I hope after taking complete bed rest, I will be fully recovered, and it would be easy for me to catch up with the class. Similarly, I can overcome the deficiency due to my absence. My father has also contacted my classmate/teacher, and she has promised to provide me with notes of all the missing work.

I hope you will sanction my leave and allow me to sit in the exams. As proof, I have attached medical reports of all diagnostics with this letter. Thank you.

Dear Sir,

My name is Ifra Gull, and I am a student in 8th grade at your school. This is to be informed you that I have been diagnosed with [X]. I have been hospitalized. My condition is not suitable due to which I cannot attend the classes. My family doctor has advised me complete bed rest for 2 weeks. To get a full recovery, I am taking regular doses of high-potency medicine which has caused me to feel drowsy, tired, and workless.  

I have been suffering from a high-grade fever for the last two days. The virus has attacked my immune system due to which I am not able to stand on my own feet. To get a full recovery in the minimum possible time, Doctor has suggested complete bed rest for 20 days I have also attached my medical reports along with this letter as proof.

I hope you will accept my request and sanction my leave. Thank you.

My son Adam currently studying in nursery-G was unable to attend school on Monday and Tuesday due to a severe sore throat. Thank God his fever has waned, and he has stopped coughing as well. I am sending him to school today as he is feeling much better now. I surely don’t want him to lack behind in his studies.

I request you please give him all his missed work for the days he was absent so that he may be able to cope with his studies well in time.
