Dear School Principal,
Kindly excuse my son Edward V. Bella, senior student of Class B, he was absent from June 10-13, Monday to Wednesday.
I had to take my children to visit their grandfather who has been very ill and has requested the presence of his grandchildren. Our family is going through a very difficult time and Edward has been deeply affected by this family matter.
I hope you would kindly allow him to take any remedial tests or exams he missed during his absence from school.
I hope you understand.
