Subject: Request for permission for half-day
I request you to grant me permission to leave from school at 12 noon today as there has been an accident at my house. My mother has suffered serious injuries and has been admitted to a hospital. I do not know that details of the injuries but my father called the school reception desk and informed them about the incident. He said he will come to pick me up from school at 12 and hence I request you to kindly grant me half-day leave so that I can be with my mother.
I have already discussed the matter with my class teacher Miss Thomas and she is aware of the situation. My friends will send me today’s homework so that I don’t miss any important classes.
