I hope this is helpful,Mrs. -----
Please be advised that I herebyI am writing to request a leave of absent for my daughter,[child's name and surname], starts onfrom 6 July till the end of term. The purpose of this absentleave is for her to accompany our family on a visit to our native country. [Child's name] hasn't been back home since 2006. We have planned a lengthy visit, so she can spend more time getting to know her grandparents while they are still living. In order to take advantage of the affordable airfares which will allow us to make this trip, we need to travel before the vacation season.
I do understand that you don’t ordinarily allow more than ten days of absence per school year, and that, due to unavoidable circumstances, she has already expended that number of days. Like you, we do not approve of absence from school for any but the most important reasons. I am requesting a special exemption for [child's name]. As you know, she is a good student who does well in her studies. We would be willing to help her with any independent study materials her teacher(s) may wish her to complete during her absence.
Please be assured that next year, we and [child's name] will aim for a return to the 100% attendance of last year. Thank you for your consideration of this request.
