RE: PARENTAL LEAVE LETTER
As you know from our conversation last week, both my son and daughter have contracted chicken pox. Since they need my attention, I would like to request a 5-day parental leave to take care of them until they recover. I will need days off starting from Number 26 to December 1.
Since my husband is a pilot, he is not always at home, making it difficult for me to leave my children at home all alone. While I am away on leave I will need someone from the office, preferably Sarah Miller, to look after my work. I have spoken with her and explained the tasks that need to be completed.
I hope to get a positive response from you.

Dear Mr. King,
I would like to request a 1-day parental leave to take my son to the orthodontist. He is scheduled to have braces put in by the dentist on April 3rd, and I will be back to work on April 4th.
As you know, I am a single parent and cannot send my child alone with someone else because he will not feel comfortable going for such a large procedure without me by his side. I hope that you understand my obligation and approve my leave.
I will make sure that my projects are not affected in any way during my 1 day leave. However, in case something does come up, I can be reached on my cell phone any time during the day.
