ANOTHER SAMPLE CONTENT:

You can take the following content as a sample if you are writing for yourself and inform the school authorities after taking holidays.

Sir/Madam,

I am writing this letter to inform you about my failure to attend school from 15th July 2018 to 19th July 2018. Please accept my humble apologies as I failed to notify the same though I am aware of school policy and I apologize for the same. I assure that I will submit the assignments assigned during my absence, as soon as possible. I also ensure that my performance wouldn’t be lagging in the upcoming exam due to this absence as I will keep up with whatever taught to my classmates.

Besides, I assure that in future I will inform and get proper permission before leaving.

CONCLUSION:

Depending on the school policy, you’ll need to write to the class teacher or principal or class monitor or any other assigned person appointed by the school or authorities. It is important to seek permission beforehand from concerned authority. If failed to ask permission, it is important to add one or two lines of apology in the letter.

In the letter addressed to school(could be even a vacation leave letter for school), it is important to mention few lines to make sure that your/ your ward’s academic performance wouldn’t be lagging due to the absence. If there’s any assignment given, it is important to assure that you/your ward will complete the same as soon as possible.
