Letter of excuse from work or meeting is regarded as a norm in the work place.

This type of apology letter expresses our regret as well as the reason for our inability to attend work or meetings. It is possible to write an excuse letter if you are unable to attend a meeting or work due to illness, or other reasons.

Below are excusing letter samples that can be used if you need to write a formal letter to miss work or a meeting.

Dear Mr. William,

I am writing to express my regret for being absent from work from June 27th to June 31st, 2021. Due to severe stomach pains, I was admitted to the hospital on the night of June 26th, 2021.

I have been diagnosed with a serious stomach infection, and the doctor has advised that I stay on antibiotics and be monitored for the next three days. Despite the fact that I will be in the hospital for three days, I will be able to take calls in the event of any work-related emergencies. I informed my team leader about it, and I also informed my colleague, Ms. Susan Abe, about the project’s important details.

I have done my best to make all of the necessary arrangements to ensure that the work does not suffer while I am away. Please let me know if you require any additional assistance from my end.

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,

Susan Bach

Day Spring Kids School

Dear M.s Judith,

Leave of absence from school

I am writing to request that you grant my son John Perry, who is enrolled in your nursery class, a week of leave.

John’s father was admitted to the hospital the day before yesterday after a serious accident. He is scheduled to have surgery the next day and the entire recuperation process will take at least a week. John would be unable to attend school during this time because the entire family will be occupied in the hospital, and no one will be able to look after him, get him ready for school or bring him back from school.

As a result, I respectfully request that you grant him a week’s leave beginning today, February 4, 2012.

Yours sincerely,

Jacqueline Perry.

Dear Mr Martin,

My name is Cynthia Peter, I am in SSS 3A. I am writing because I will not be able to attend class tomorrow. I am sick with a cold and flu, so my doctor has advised me to stay in bed as much as possible to speed up my recovery. For the same reason, I will not be able to attend school, I regret that I will not be able to participate in the test scheduled for tomorrow. However, I would be grateful if you could conduct it again for my benefit. If that is not possible, I understand the concern and am willing to forego the grades in exchange.

Please consider my request.

Yours faithfully,

Cynthia Peter

I will be available by phone after the initial two-day period in which I will be sedated and completely restrained.

Dear Mr Steve,

Re. Paternity Leave

I am writing to request two weeks of statutory paternity leave and another two weeks of unpaid leave until my parents can visit my wife and our new child. As I previously stated, my wife is pregnant and is in the final month of her pregnancy, so she is very close to giving birth to our first child.

I would like to apply for paternity leave to begin as soon as her baby is born. At this time, it is not possible for me to confirm the exact delivery date.

I will start working again as soon as the four weeks are up. I am grateful that you recognized my situation and took my application into consideration.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,
