Missing any days from school or college is not recommended. Absences can leave you stranded with your class work and in some cases behind the other students in the class. Catching up can be difficult and may even cause your grades to fall. These adverse points should be kept in mind before taking a student leave. However, certain commitments like weddings, funerals or medical issues may make it necessary to take leave from school. When ever you take a leave, make sure that you are doing so through the proper channels. That is why informing your teachers and school administration about your leave in writing is the best option. Check out the samples of student leave letter below to get a good idea of what is required in the document.

Subject: Leave Request
Dear Mr. Macguire,
I am an O level student at the London College for Boys. I am enrolled in the Business program and my Roll number is 12345. Due to my sister’s wedding on the 5th of April, I will not be able to attend classes from April 4 to April 7, 2010.
I would like to request a leave during this time. I have discussed the matter with Mr. Rudolph Gerald and he has given me a positive response. I will also make sure that I am up to date with all the missed work on my return.
I would like to thank you in advance for your understanding.
