Dear Mr. Parker,
My father has a scheduled appointment with his doctor tomorrow, and in order to accompany him, I would like to request a leave. The appointment is for 2:00pm tomorrow, which means I can’t give proper time to work. While I know that we are running on a tight schedule in regards to the new project, my father has been very ill lately and has trouble going around on his own.
I have requested my teammate James to put in a few extra hours in order to complete some of my work, to which he has agreed. Furthermore, I will be available on my personal contact number throughout, in case my assistance is required.
As for my pending work, I will be completing it as soon as I return.
Kindly consider and approve my leave request.
Marry R. Mcclain
