If you're writing a sick leave letter to a school teacher, I would recommend including the following things:
- The illness that is keeping the child away from school
- How long they will be absent for
- Any medical or doctor notes that might be relevant
- Daytime contact details incase the teacher needs to get hold of you
Based on the above points, I have created a sample sick leave letter which you could easily customize for your own needs and send over to your school teacher in order to be excused from school for a few days:
Example of a sick leave letter for a school teacher
Dear (teacher's name),

After checking with (child's name)'s doctor, I have been advise that he/she will be absent from school for (number of days), and you can expect him/her back in the classroom on (date of child's return).
If you would like to discuss this further, please don't hesitate to contact me on (daytime phone number).
