    See my suggested changes above. You probably need to tell the principal whether you need the morning or the afternoon off.

    With regard to the greeting and closing of letters, we use "Dear Sir/Madam" with "Yours faithfully", we use "Dear Mr/Mrs/Ms/Miss + surname" with "Yours sincerely". The top of your letter was laid out more like a memo, using "To: " so I closed it with just "Yours". If you consider this to be a formal letter, I suggest you address it to "Dear [name of principal]" - I assume you know his/her name.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
