Questions and Answers

How do I write a formal excuse letter to my principal to excuse me for a week?

I don't know the steps of writing the excuse letter, and I don't know the right words to say.


There are no strict steps to writing an excuse letter: you have to express yourself to relate the idea of why you should be excused for a week, adding your own reasons and explanations. You could write something like the sample below. Please note that your address and date are written at the right margin of the sheet of paper. The letter can be short, as you are only requesting for the possibility to be absent.
